Recommended Posts

"Looking further ahead they cite “a mansion tax on Central London property... and more forced sales as baby boomers have to raise money to cover care costs/inadequate pensions savings” as other bearish factors"

Sooner or later people have to move on with their lives, and other factors other than waiting for a fantasy price that will never materialise come to the fore.

I'd say all three options are good for HPC.

1. Real wages are going down not up.

2. Interest rates/gilt yields can only be suppressed with more QE.

3. QE is driving up core inflation undermining any recovery.

Baby boomers are between 49 and 68.

So that's a load of old ****.

Surprised they haven't mentioned huge swathes of London disappearing under water though.
