Tickets are still available to the Vancouver Real Estate Roller Coaster. Critics are calling it the Summer blockbuster that’s not to be missed!
“..a useful image when thinking about asset prices in general today and always. Human behaviour and leverage drive our asset price cycles. If we always keep the roller coaster image in mind, we will never be able to relax and fall asleep after a period of very steep climbs; nor will we be as inclined to throw in the towel after a period of very steep falls.”
Danielle Park – Juggling Dynamite
“..a wonderful illustration of financial storytelling. Metaphor can be a wonderful tool, the reason this one works is that it takes an over used cliché and makes it real.”
Stewart Marshall – Financial Storyteller
“A vomit inducing ride.”
“The only thing I had a problem with is that [it implies] what really is going to happen is we’re going to fall off the roller coaster and sink into the water. Investments are volatile. If you want low volatility then buy low-volatility GICs.”
