Recommended Posts

For those who subscribe to the bible according to HPC. Not only are prices rising but consumers expect them to keep on going up. Whoops.

Depends who you listen to.

The FT index says things are the worst for 10 years--the market is in deep deep trouble it seems

The housing market’s rise in 2005 was the lowest for a decade.

With YOY negative acording to Hometrack I would say the crash continues for awhile yet, in fact the party has just begun!

Belief in the paranormal seems to be widespread. Various polls have shown that

As many as one-third of Americans believe in astrology, that is, that the position of the stars and planets can affect people's lives (Harris 1998, Gallup 1996, and Southern Focus 1998). In 1999, 7 percent of those queried in the NSF survey said that astrology is "very scientific" and 29 percent answered "sort of scientific." (See figure 8-24.) Twelve percent said they read their horoscope every day or "quite often"; 32 percent answered "just occasionally."[41] (See appendix tables 8-38 and 8-39.)

Nearly half or more believe in extrasensory perception or ESP (Gallup 1996; Southern Focus 1998). According to one poll, the number of people who have consulted a fortune-teller or a psychic may be increasing: in 1996, 17 percent of the respondents reported contact with a fortune-teller or psychic, up from 14 percent in 1990 (Gallup 1996).[42]

Between one-third and one-half of Americans believe in unidentified flying objects (UFOs). A somewhat smaller percentage believes that aliens have landed on Earth (Gallup 1996; Southern Focus 1998).

Other polls have shown one-fifth to one-half of the respondents believing in haunted houses and ghosts (Harris 1998; Gallup 1996; Sparks, Nelson, and Campbell 1997), faith healing (Roper 1994, USA Today 1998), communication with the dead (Gallup 1996), and lucky numbers. (See appendix table 8-40.) Some surveys repeated periodically even show increasing belief in these examples of pseudoscience (USA Today 1998).
