Debate House Prices


We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team and we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand. As a result, we’ve reluctantly decided to temporarily close the Debate House Prices & the Economy Board so that we can redirect our limited resources to those who need us most at this time.

Please do not post content intended for this board elsewhere in the forum – we appreciate your help and understanding during this exceptionally difficult time. It goes without saying, we hope to get back to full business as soon as possible!

    I bet he is mighty relieved to have finished. I don't envy the job of his replacement.

    All your posts seem to stem around hate, loathing and destruction and suffering.

    His so-called forward guidance quickly turned into a bit of a mess, and IMO he let himself get a bit too partisan during Project Fear, prior to the original Brexit vote. Maybe just a sign of the times we live in, but I also thought he spoke too much for someone in his position. Not unlike Bercow in that respect. Seemed to think anyone was actually interested in him, rather than just the MPC and its announcements.

    That's the modern world of social media. Over analysing every single word spoken. More recently he seems to have learnt the lesson and taken a step back.

    Same style worked ok in his previous job. These days you feel sorry for anybody in public life. As whatever they say is just dissected by endless radio phone in's and ill informed journalists.

    Carney was a chump brought in to keep interest rates rock bottom indefinitely and so keep the house price bubble inflated. He made excuse after excuse not to normalise rates and 12 years on from Lehman we are still stuck with emergency rates. He's loaded the MPC up with feeble doves too scared to raise rates.
    After a decade of cheap money, we're now reaping what we sowed, house owners mortgaged to the hilt, savers investing in risky assets to get a yield, interest rates cuts with no impact and a fragile banking sector, good riddance Carney.

    That's as maybe, but he wasn't in his previous job was he?
    People in public life should evolve with the times, I don't feel sorry for any of them.
    Last 10 years social media has changed the way most of us work.
