Ere We Go - Housing Bust 'LIKELY IN NEXT FEW YEARS' - FORMER BROWN ADVISER

Financial Times: Housing Bust 'Likely in Next Few Years'

A Housing market bust is likely within the next few years because house price growth has been grounded
in unrealistic expectations of double-digit annual rises, a report by a prominent economist and former adviser to
Gordon Brown will warn on Wednesday.

Throwing cold water on the current housing market euphoria, David Miles, chief UK economist of Morgan Stanley,
says it is only possible to explain the more than doubling of house prices in the past decade if peoples demand for
housing has been heavily influenced by expectations that the rapid price rises would continue. Chris Giles - Financial Times
