Shows Gross Rental yeilds across countries

Global Property Guide: Country investment ratings

I thought this might be of interest to show where we (sorry its the capital only) are in the world for Global property investing for yields. Of course it doenst take things into account - like political climate, and tax status. Although if you hover over the star ratings you can see pros and cons of the country. Also the stats arent all as at the same date nor are they all updateable at a common date going forward. To see us we are at no. 74 - its alphabetical 3.48% "very poor".

If you click on the 3.48% you get a comparison across countries in the continent. In any case i thought it might illustrate the myth that the smart (or is that not so smart) money should pile into London, regardless of any appreciation or depreciation risks in sterling.

I checked to details for where I live, totally out of date.
It describes Colombia as an 'excellent' place to invest, I live here, I don't agree.
There are lots of reasons why this is not true, political instability, property bubble, dodgy Spanish banks etc.
I wonder if the other information listed is reliable?

There was and maybe still is a deep and wide belief that growth was an American prerogative and an entitlement and that the trajectory of individuals and the Nation was always ascending. This belief was justified when growth was EARNED by savings, work, innovation and market driven resource allocation.
Growth meant that all unfunded obligations, personal, corporate , community and National could be financed by an ever expanding economy and that debt could be accumulated without inhibition by individuals, companies and the multiple political units. This is because wealth and income at very level would expand to create the asset base to support borrowing and the income to service the debt.

During the last 20 years the expectations and entitlements of growth became decoupled from the work, innovation, savings and proper resource allocation need to produce growth. Thus, the Great Divergence, which is the growing gap between the unwarranted growth expectations and entitlements about income and wealth and the capacity to produce income and generate wealth.

The appetite to attain wealth and consume income has grown apace while the capacity to produce these outcomes first stopped growing in 2008 and in 2009 is actually atrophying. The gap between hyperbolic fantasy and stagnant actuality is now becoming an abyss.

For years, the gap was unwittingly or willfully obscured, for most, by the fog of debt and in 2009 by the noxious vapors of criminal fiat money.

But debt and fiat money are not a bridge across the gap but haze of delusion and deceit.

Now, more Americans realize that the abyss is real, the facile expectations and avaricious entitlements are both narcotic and neurotic dreams and debt financed spending and consuming are a fog that has prevented them from seeing the chasm.
The choice is nearly upon us: Increase real capacity and control grotesque entitlements and undeserved expectations so the abyss can be bridged by savings, production and market governed discipline or.....Fall into the abyss.

The previous was A QUOTE from User 35373 on Seeking Alpha not mine.

Sums up in quite a simple way what is wrong with our underlying assumptions, and invites the possibilty that the way may have to get poorer/go backwards before we can go forward in a valid and productive manner.

There seem to me to be a few funamental and basic contra
