And back in Hong Kong, the government says it is prepared to adjust land policies if necessary. "Hong Kong property buyers have been in a prolonged low-interest-rate environment, and now they're behaving like drunken drivers on the road - they don't think about consequences," says Nicole Wong, a property analyst.

  • Funny how everyone else in the world thinks sky high property prices are a bad thing apart from the UK’s central bank and government.

  • Western commentators are either delightfully dumb (or hell-bent on finding reasons for apocalypse) when it comes to analysing China.

    Chinese house price stats reflect the sale price of new builds. As these are becoming vastly better appointed, year by year, it is not surprising that the average price has been rising quite sharply.

    One needs to remember that the Chinese regard a second-hand house in much the ame way we view a second hand car – something that is of very little value, when compared to the new product.

    There is a small element of speculation, and the Chinese govt has already clamped down to stop it growing.

    China is not Dubai squared!
