  • Land registry will show further gains with its time lag, since rises are partly down to hot money flowing in from the Eurozone into the relative tax haven, strong currency area and relative economic growth of London. Money is fleeing Paris and Berlin right now.

  • Happened shortly after I pointed out his claim to have exchanged contracts twice. Maybe he’s not all he seems.

    Yes, I noticed that, and was much perturbed.

    I’d been enjoying greatly Libby’s wild speculations regarding everything from international capital flows, the price of oil, EU membership applications, bond rates, interest rates, and even the type of cycling gear the new well-heeled citizens of Enfield will wear once the place inevitably becomes a hotbed of high-quality living unattainable by the hoi polloi — and all in the name of evidence for huge future house price rises.

    Now a veritable treasure trove of economic theory has been lost, perhaps forever. Will the world ever see such like ever again?

  • How ironic that some postings that are about house prices have been pulled. I don’t have any problem with Libertas’ conversion to house price bull but his conspiracy theory postings seem to be tolerated as well 🙁

  • Is this guy for real? Libertas, I look forward to your tales of woe next year when you find that you could have got the same house 25% cheaper and not been paying interest on that 25% for the next 25 years.

    Good luck.

  • Goodbye libertas – I have welcomed your valuabe contribution to sustained oversimplified austrain theory and dogged determination not to comprehend the nature of rent and Ricardo’s law

  • Khards, if prices fall 25% and we get serious consumer price deflation, rates will be NEGATIVE and savers will be paying my mortgage.

  • Libby’s former pseudonym “Planning for a Crash” (P4AC) will no doubt return as planning for a boom.
