Following on from the previous post inflation anticipating property bubbles are inflating everywhere

Analysis - To hedge inflation, property trusts are the new gold

With central banks printing cash to boost moribund economies, according to this article investors in Asia wanting to hedge against rising prices are dumping gold and doubling down on property. "I have been saying for the last two years that REITs are a good inflation hedge," said Charlie Chan, one of the best-known hedge fund managers in Asia, who made a killing by betting on them in 2012. "They are easier to value, you get what you see and you own the building and if there is inflation, the building price will just go up," added Chan. "Yield-hungry investors are increasingly being squeezed out of the sovereign bond markets by central bankers everywhere," said David Baran, co-founder of hedge fund Symphony Financial Partners in Tokyo. "REITs are an increasingly compelling asset class."

    Nobody in the news media is ever going to suggest that we are sleepwalking into another crisis. Meanwhile, Osborne is doing his best ro re-engineer the sub prime crisis for us.

    Spain is living proof of the danger of a property bubble. The IMF says Spain is bankrupt. Link:

    Jeremy Warner in the Telegraph did a nice analysis, available from the site. But it won’t stop those determined to “prosper”.
