I cannot believe that the market is still being talked up, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary....!!
This country is going to go bust very quickly unless it stops being naive and greedy.

But the Nationwide and Halifax told the MPC that the market was cooling ...

In addition, the people who compiled the report are very suspect - they are a front company for the banks

http://www.acadametrics.co.uk/ourClients.php

so that they can say that "Acadametrics" (nice mix of "academic" implying independent and reliable and "metrics" meaning to measure) came up with the data, not them.

The FT should be much more circumspect about data received from shills.
