Don't know if a link to this has been posted before.

Basically, its a blog by a top consultant / freelance economist, who posts at least once a day.

Pet hates of his include how Tory policy is to keep HPI forever for an illusion of GDP growth, how HPI is excluded from CPI, how central bankers keep kicking the can down the road with 'QE to infinity and beyond', etc.

Of course, most on HPC think all of this.

But this guy goes public, is well respected (he usually mentions when he gives a tv or press interview, which he does often), and actually engages with comments on his blog.

Amongst the other interesting articles an interesting article on the inflation indices farce in case there's any doubt that it isn't all being manipulated with a (potentially) fraudulent picture of inflation currently being presented..

I think this is the thing that does my head in the most. The idea that you can exclude what is likely for many to be their biggest cost from the inflation figures. I don't know exactly how (or if) housing is represented at all, but it makes my blood boil listening to some commentators. There was someone on the telly a few weeks ago telling us how good we have because because inflation is effectively zero - whilst a renter suffering 10% pa rent rises and spending half of his income on that already has a 5% personal inflation rate before considering anything else. There is simply no connection with reality for many. And of course that's before we start to consider the actual cost of houses to buy.

He was on Money Box on Radio 4 over the weekend. Did you hear him on there?
