“Landlords have been unable to raise rents…”
The legendary, magnificent, frequently discussed, and all-in-all mind-blowing house price bubble in Prime London finally came to the attention of the Bank of England. On its blog, “Bank Underground,” this discovery comes with a big-fat caveat:
Bank Underground is a blog for Bank of England staff to share views that challenge – or support – prevailing policy orthodoxies. The views expressed here are those of the authors, and are not necessarily those of the Bank of England, or its policy committees.I get it. It’s not official. In official circles at the BOE, the house price bubble in Prime London and other parts of London, for that matter, is still dormant.
Since Donald Trump’s victory on election night we have seen the worst bond crash in 15 years. Global bond investors have seen trillions of dollars of wealth wiped out since November 8th, and analysts are warning of another tough week ahead. The general consensus in the investing community is that a Trump administration will mean much higher inflation, and as a result investors are already starting to demand higher interest rates. Unfortunately for all of us, history has shown that higher interest rates always cause an economic slowdown. And this makes perfect sense, because economic activity naturally slows down when it becomes more expensive to borrow money. The Obama administration had already set up the next president for a major recession anyway, but now this bond crash threatens to bring it on sooner rather than later.
Everybody’s arguing about Trump. Families are split. Couples are at each others’ throats. Racial, ethnic, and religious tensions are in the air. Here at VT the comment section has been in an uproar for months.
I’ve been arguing about Trump with some smart people, people I respect. I just pre-recorded an interview with James Petras, an accomplished leftist anti-Empire sociologist and contributor to my False Flag Trilogy. He has positive things to say about Trump.
So does Robert David Steele, the whistleblowing former CIA Clandestine Services Officer who’s a prime force behind my new book Orlando False Flag. Steele actually believes Trump might push through the Election Reform Act of 2016. Listen to my brand-new interview with Steele for the details.
US President Barack Obama on Sunday defended free trade as fellow Asia-Pacific leaders vowed to fight protectionism after Donald Trump’s shock election victory sparked fears for the future of global commerce.
The surprise win by Trump, who vowed to tear up trade deals that he claimed sent American jobs abroad, has raised concerns that years of rolling back trade barriers could be reversed.
His victory overshadowed a summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) group held in Peru this week, where leaders found themselves under fierce pressure to defend trade against a rising tide of anti-globalization sentiment in Europe and America.
For months we’ve been told that the Clinton Foundation, and it’s various subsidiaries, were simple, innocent “charitable” organizations, despite the mountain of WikiLeaks evidence to the contrary. Well, if that is, in fact, true perhaps the Clintons could explain why wealthy foreign governments, like Norway, are suddenly slashing their contributions now that Hillary’s political clout has been erased?
As the Norwegian newspaper Hegnar points out, Norway is expected to slash their contributions to the Clinton Foundation by 87% now that Hillary has lost the presidency.
For some years now, health and technology experts have warned that smart meters being installed at homes all over the country may be emitting hazardous electronic waves that can damage the nervous system.
Now, as reported by Natural Blaze, a demonstration in a newly released video is groundbreaking in its portrayal of just how smart meters are harming us.
Many people know that these smart meters communicate with power companies via microwave signals. What has was not known – until now – is that additional frequencies from these meters are also transmitted in the 2 to 50 kilohertz range.
A shopping mall Santa in Sanford, Florida was fired after he told a 10-year-old girl that Hillary Clinton was on his naughty list.
“Hillary Clinton,” he said and then laughed, News 6 reports.
Every aspect of this year’s US Presidential election has been fraught with myths, distortions, fabrications, wishful thinking and invented fears.
We will proceed to discuss facts and fictions.
The mass media, parties and candidates emphasized the ‘unprecedented voter turnout’ in the elections. In fact, 48% of the eligible voters abstained.
