No Recovery Just Illusion And Delusion

Yet another house price survey suggests more pain ahead

FT article today also said re Hometrack: 'Richard Donnell, director of research, said recent surveys showed a marked slowdown in the rate of growth in the volume of new buyers registering with agents. "This suggests that the pent up demand that has boosted the market in recent months is starting to fade in the face of firmer pricing and fewer clear bargains." Price rises have been concentrated in just 16 per cent of the market, primarily in London, with prices remaining static across the remaining 84 per cent of the country' Are the cash rich dwindling and the others just waiting for property to actually become AFFORDABLE? I am wondering if this could be the week that sentiment really starts to reverse

  • This stop-start market with steadily falling prices and miniscule volumes is what lies ahead for the next ten or fifteen years unless the government normalizes monetary policy and removes the barriers to allowing the market to find its long term price (like the newly introduced partisan repossession laws).

    That, friends, is the textbook definition of a lost generation.

  • I guess one could say though Paul that it was the past 15 years that saw a LOST generation, the next surely is going to be a BIG wake up call with signposts everywhere showing us all too clearly where we all went so horribly horribly wrong

  • Crunchy – Why do you end so many of your posts with “Go figure”

    As you may have guessed, I am not of the “text speak” generation.

    This is a serious question, I am not taking the p155.

    I use that term when I am putting a contary view point across.

    It’s a call to reconsider and ask why are we not doing this.

    Example-Ben Bernanke is an expert on the Great Depression of 1929, yet he is making the very same mistakes, but this time on a larger

    scale. Now that’s taking the p 155. The link I posted above poses another theory which to me makes more sense.

    Please take some time out to view. he is a good speaker to boot!

    I hope that answers your question. There is a deeper level but only if you see it after go figuring!

  • The problem with ‘go figure’ is that it’s an sub-literate Americanism.

    ‘Go and figure [it out]’ is the proper construction.

  • @15 rumble:

    – If inflation is currently next to nil, then cash is better than a falling or illiquid assets.
    – if inflation is perceived a risk, then capital will fly into long-term capital (heat and power, waste, nuclear, water)
    – if there are opportunities in currency – due to weakness or imbalance – then this is easy to convert.
    – if people really have no clue, then gold is bound to lift.

  • Sorry Crunchy wasn’t calling **you** sub-literate, merely explaining why constructions such as this can provoke a reaction among those of us who find American jargon irritiating in the extreme.

    I suggest everyone goes for a rest-room break and calms down a little.
