Misguided Lad At Work

Recommended Posts

Just had a water cooler chat with a junior chap at work. Talk turned to property and the astronomical costs in London where we work.

I thought I had a potential ally and then suddenly he began to babble on about BTL city centre exectuive apartments Wolverhampton which he was planning to get involved with (he's a Londoner). I suggested that Wolverhampton was not a city, a dump and that the market for such properties was going to be tiny. He nodded attentively, but his eyes had glazed over.

The BTL fever is now so ingrained in our population and especially the young, that it will take a massive crash to get it out of their system. The half-witted herd continued to throw money into tech stocks even after they had started fallingand the same herd will continue to throw money into BTL even while falls gather speed.

Choppy waters ahead! :)

What was that story about the shoe-shine boy giving tips on shares, just before the Wall St Crash? :ph34r:

It is officially a City, but I know what you mean.

The lure of "easy money" often seperates people from what little common sense they possess.
