    That’s funny. A lot of us have known for years exactly what was going on and its why we refrained from buying property.

  • There’s none so deaf as those that won’t hear. To me this sound like Greenspan is pleading ignorance which, of course, is no defence under the law.

    Until I came across this website about three months ago I felt like a lone voice in the wind, with only the exception of that BBC2 Money Programme special on cheap credit that aired about five years ago.

    I am so glad I have found this site, know there are people minded like me and that this excruciating charade of a property bubble may be coming to a long overdue end.

  • Greenspan said in the article:

    “It was our job to unfreeze the American banking system if we wanted the economy to function. This required that we keep rates modestly low.”

    Is there a prize for guessing if the Fed will repeat the mistake? I reckon it’s a racing certainty, alas!
