Roman Real-estate Bubble About To Pop

Recommended Posts


Leading Barbarian Financial Experts Agree

Greenspanicus urges caution against

"Irrational Exuberance."

ASIAN STEPPES -- 9 out of 10 leading Barbarian financial experts agree that the Roman Housing market so-called "bubble" is about to pop, to be followed shortly thereafter by the lamentations of the women.

"A market correction is inevitable after the 'boom times' of 380 AD," explained Barbarian spokesman G'narr "The Meathook" Taborr, addressing a crowd of reporters from his palatial tent. "Citizens of the former Roman Empire should consider directing their hard currency investments elsewhere -- such as, for example, me."

He then pulled a steak off of his horse and ate it.

Once-thriving housing markets such as those in Colonia Agrippina are in decline, owing to a number of complex economical factors, including the fact that the village has been burned to the ground with the majority of its population gored on stakes outside of town. "Sackings have a measurable impact on the local markets," agreed Senator Pontius Gabinius. "But one can expect these 'corrections' in overpriced areas without condemning the booming real-estate market as a whole."

Gabinius paused to address G'narr's concerns. "Did that guy just eat a piece of meat he had sitting under his horse's saddle?" He rubbed his hands together uncomfortably and visibly gagged. "What up with that?"

With captured Roman slave prices topping 3.58 Denarii per pound, analysts are speculating if the Roman economy is on the road to recovery or ruin. "Any given market is prone to ups and downs," argues Gabinius. "But the Roman Empire is here to stay."

In rebuttal, G'narr drank blood from the Senator's skull.
