Ups and Downs

Britain is heading for another 2008 crash: hereÂ’s why

There were three times in recent decades when the government ran a surplus: Note how each surplus is followed, within a certain number of years, by an equal and opposite recession. ThereÂ’s every reason to believe thatÂ’s exactly whatÂ’s about to happen now. At the moment, Conservative policy is to create a housing bubble. Inflated housing prices create a boom in construction and that makes it look as if the economy is growing. But it can only be paid for by saddling homeowners with more and more mortgage debt.

  • couldn’t agree more. The problem with the last Labour government wasn’t that it was too profligate with public money (public expenditure didn’t exceed 40% of GDP until the banks blew up), it encouraged too much borrowing in the private sector. If you look at a chart of household debt since say 2000, the growth in debt is astonishing. (and they also privatised everything in sight)

    Agreed we’re due a correction at some point although the Gruadina can’t help but have a pop at the Tories. As if their beloved Red Wing weren’t complicit in this shambles of a rentier economy.

  • If the Guardian had predicted the 2008 crash, I’d be happy to listen to their prediction of the next one.
