Uk House Prices Are Overvalued, Warns Oecd

Recommended Posts

Tasty bit of Bear news from FT.com:

'House prices in the UK are “significantly overvalued” warned the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development on Tuesday in a new analysis of the world housing boom.'

It warned of the danger of a protracted period of large house price falls with implications for a slowdown in consumer spending.

I so hope thats true and that it corrects, with a downswing too!

I could buy a 3 bed semi with a tiny mortgage and never have to worry about moving!

I don't normally get paranoid but the BBC website article on the OECD report this morning made no mention of house prices being significantly overvalued in UK, Ireland and Spain and just talked about general economic growth projectiosn. Now the entire report has disappeared. Very spooky! :unsure:

I really, really hope the country does not actually run this way but sadly it may well. Presumably Brown has the carrot of titles for BBC management who do the "right" thing and the stick of licence fee renegotiation...

If Steve Wright can mention it why the feck doesn't the BBC's supposed 'news' website mention it?

1st no mention of this weeks hometrack report, but the Nationwide is there, now this OECD report being ignored, but the bit about the OECD warning the ECB about rate rises appearing.

Are the government leaning on the BBC? Are journalists avoiding bearish article because they have a VI in keeping prices up? Are BBC editors telling journalists not to publish for similar reasons?

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

Don't forget that this was FRONT PAGE of the FT today. It was Top Priority for them, yet completely unimportant to the BBC Business Desk....bizarre.

You forget how two top BBC execs went last year under Govt pressure.

Pour encourager les autres? Maybe those left will stay in line now...or maybe not. I am not entirely convinced of a conspiracy, it just seems odd. :ph34r:
