Have you all been worn down or bought houses, when prices are at an all time high?

We are living in the Twilight zone. Bad economic news is ignored, whereas the slightest grain of good news causes financial markets FTSE, DOW, S&P markets to go completely nuts. The funny thing is that most figures released are revised down, but the initial reporting has the desired effect - so no-one cares.

UK house prices certainly should not be as high are they are, given the pretty dire state of the economy, but like I said, 'slight' good news gets big exposure but bad news is completely ignored - the media simply isn't interested.

The UK continues to live in a fools paradise.

US markets had big misses in February with analysts taking a red pen to earnings forecasts

Yet markets rallied and hit new highs

Make no mistake...this is end game stuff...the end game being another even bigger
Credit crunch followed by debt reset/depression

Our banks have been lending into the biggest bubble in history

A bank collapsed in Austria over the weekend. Hardly reported at all. All people want to read about is the colour of Jihadi John's underpants.

I'm surprised that anyone is surprised by that. That was it's purpose....but artificial it is, and reflects neither market forces nor economic fundamentals.

Next time they start printing it will be because the tax base has collapsed and the government need to fund themselves. Got gold?

When prices are at an all time high? Hardly sensible.

I think the tightening will happen long before that; I think it will come about due to a currency scare, or some unexpected event.

I think asset prices will fall hard, leading to further currency debasement and further impoverishment of the general public. Then a new monetary system will carefull be introduced ensuring that those at the top get to keep their ill gotten gains.
