    You can find intelligent comments on HPC

    Are you still going and looking at HPC? Getting censored and banned off there is the best thing that happened to me in ages. I don't argue with idiots any more and I also got my life back.

    The Era of Booming House Prices Is Over

    I think people use the word 'taxpayer' when they really mean 'state' to inflate their sense of self-importance. The State couldn't give a tinkers' cuss about you or any other 'taxpayer'. The taxpayer gives money to the State and the State does what it wants with it. In the same way as your employer gives you money and you do what you want with it. Saying the "taxpayer" owns the banks is like saying your employer owns your groceries.

    Purely to nit-pick but it's something that urines me off.... The nationalised banks are not owned by the taxpayer. They are owned by the State. There is a difference. Don't fall for it.

    Which is why it'll not happen.

    A few people know who he is and which country he lives in but that would be telling and not fair on him. Besides, his legendary status would be ruined if you knew who he was.

    Cancellation of X Factor, Coronation Street and the shutting down of FaceBook would cause more civil unrest than anything else.

    UK House price forecasts for 2011

    Business news: "The recent fall in house prices is a result of the crippling cold temperatures that gripped the country in December. Harry Cockwit from RightMove says 'it's business as usual folks. You can't go wrong with property. Use this buying opportunity before it's too late'."

    UK House price forecasts for 2011

    It's already too late for that one. They've had 7/8 months. The public expect things to be changed quickly. After 7/8 months anything that happens now is Cameron's "fault".

    You can't go wrong with property. It's a blip. Get on the ladder now. They'll go back up again soon. It was the cold weather that did it. It's a buying opportunity. Get on the ladder now. You can't go wrong with property. Property only ever goes up. You can't go wrong with property. Because you can't go wrong with property.

    Exactly. It's all about sentiment.

    UK House price forecasts for 2011

    Exactly. This is why house prices will not fall until most people think like we do. I.e. Houses are over-priced.

    UK House price forecasts for 2011

    You know house prices will fall. I know house prices will fall. But they'll not fall by a fair amount until most people believe they will. That's what you're up against.
  15. The Money Morning email from Money Week has a nice bit about inflation expectations in 2011. They say 'jawboning' is about all the BoE will do with regard to raising interest rates. Number 2 in this article. http://www.moneyweek.com/investments/stock...2011-05108.aspx
