Everybody talks about crash…

Boom to gloom?

Interview with the Guardian Money editor... this guy has very bullish views, what struck me is his casual attitude... "yeah, but what is a crash... people has so much equity in their homes... prices fall by 50%?... who cares!" Not a word on the level of indebtedness of the country... not a word on risk!

    “The investment bank ABN Amro this week issued a Home Truths research note declaring that UK housing was 50% overvalued. Prices, it said, had become “detached from fundamentals” and “a housing market collapse will undermine confidence in sterling, preventing the Bank of England from cutting rates and prolonging the downturn”.

  • Is it just me or has the wind changed direction this past 2 weeks? I have been hanging around on this website for 6 months and the crash-related activity in the past 2 weeks has been considerable. Since 2 months ago, I believe there will be a crash soon.

    I liked the bit:- “prices and gonna fall, well they’re not gonna fall…”

    A perfect spoken encapsulation (even if apparently a slip of the tongue on this occasion) of what we read all the time in the press – prices are too high, there’s a bubble (well sort of), it’s madness, it can’t carry on like this – but DON’T WORRY – PRICES ARE NOT GOING TO FALL! Got to keep telling the readers / listeners what they want to hear or they’ll go elsewhere…

    People have been mewing the equity in their homes and spending it.

    That is the problem.

    I would focus on 80% for a crash figure.
