    Sky News How the UK is facing five housing crises at once Currently the main story on their website: https://news.sky.com/story/line-18-uks-housing-crisis-wont-be-solved-by-building-more-homes-11503447 The UK is facing not one but five concurrent mini housing crises - each with dramatically different consequences and solutions, research from Sky News finds. Finally, and arguably far more importantly than the supply crisis the government fixates on, there is a problem of cost and credit. In many parts of the UK the level of house prices is determined as much by how easily and cheaply people can borrow than by actual housing need. Intriguingly, this credit crisis is far more widespread across the UK than the other crises we identified in our research - though it is particularly focused in London and the South East, and in towns where second homes are popular. TO ADD: There's another write up of this. Sky massively plugging this issue: https://news.sky.com/story/line-18-the-full-story-on-nations-housing-crisis-11503796

    I was making reference to the interest rates in the headline, in 2008 interest rates were around 6% at the time of the crash then they dropped them to around 0.5% in the blink of an eye to help. Todays interest rate is 0.75% so dropping it back to 0.25% aint gonna achieve jack shit. I was taking the pi55 out the headline and the banks, Hence i forgot the winky things.

    Ten years ago, in autumn 2008, the world watched as the biggest financial meltdown in history unfolded. The crash plunged the world into recession, lost millions of families their homes and its shadow still hangs over our politics today. And when the Queen went to the London School of Economics, she asked the question everyone wanted the answer to: why did no one see it coming? In this programme Aditya Chakrabortty, senior economics commentator at the Guardian newspaper, chairs a discussion between four economists who can claim they did: Raghuram Rajan, former governor of the Reserve Bank of India; Steve Keen, professor of economics at Kingston University in London; Ann Pettifor, director of PRIME, Policy Research in Macroeconomics and council member of the Progressive Economy Forum; and Peter Schiff, American stockbroker and investor. They warned financial crisis was imminent, they wrote books and papers, they even told the powerful to their faces - and they got nowhere. They showed intellectual bravery of a kind that isn't often celebrated, and it cost some of them dearly. Call them four "Cassandras" - cursed, as Greek myth has it, to utter prophesies that were true but never believed. Had they been heeded we may have averted what the then chief US central banker, Ben Bernanke, calls "the worst financial crisis in global history, including the Great Depression". How did they see it when no one else did? Why didn't others listen? And what happens next? Producer: Eve Streeter A Greenpoint Production for Radio 4. Radio 4, 8:00pm this evening.

    London house prices falling at fastest rate for nine years "Prices have not dropped more rapidly since September 2009 when they fell 3.25 per cent while the market reeled from the impact of the financial crisis." https://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/london-house-prices-falling-at-fastest-rate-for-nine-years-a3940096.html No problem, just slash interest rates like they did before!..
