  • the only thing in short supply today seem to be arguments that can still prop up the biggest collective allucination of this century in the UK – the housing market. I laugh when I hear that the doommongers got it wrong in 2005… in 2005, in 2008… does not make a difference to me… but for the people who will suffer for this crash, it would have been much much better the bubble had burst 2 years earlier, wouldnt it?

  • If there is indeed a bubble which seems to be in doubt.

  • Only by people like you David, only by people like you …… Incidentally, what’s you view on whether American forces have reached the outskirts of Baghdad yet?

  • p.s. David, when the VI’s finally admit that house prices are tanking, I do hope you have the decency to come back on here and admit you were wrong.

  • Who exactly doubts that there has not been a bubble in house prices?

    (your own opinion doesn’t count, by the way)

  • I’m STILL waiting to hear what David thinks about oil prices, as he was asserting a while back that the ‘peak driving season’ in the US was due to end (in September???) and so prices would be falling back with falling demand. Were you right or wrong on that one David?

  • David is either stupid or like Trevor Bayliss. [a wind up merchant] Take your pick. Who cares whether he admits hes wrong? the more i read of his opinions the more i realise they are of no value and add nothing to sensible debate. Its a shame really its good to get a sensible and supported bullish view. We can all say off the cuff things with no support, but there IS a bullish argument and it COULD be supported. [Im not saying i think it right but i can see it]. In 2005 you could have produced the same arguments that the top was locked in as now. [with the exception of the Credit tightening] but im certain that there was alot of bearish arguments on here then which were plain wrong. The fact is a bubble by definitiion is very difficult to determine the point before it bursts. If we could:

    1. Recognise a bubble
    2. Determine the exact moment when it would burst
    3. Liquidate just prior to this.

    Then there would never be bubbles in the first place. Its this denial that there is one that ensures it will pop but no-one really knows when. Thats why you need to look at alternative “hocus pocus” forecasting methods.
