We’re not number one.

Southseacompany shared this link to a list of global cities with the most overvalued real estate:

Swiss bank UBS’s Global Real Estate Bubble Index 2019 found a significant overvaluation in half of the 24 housing markets analysed by the research. The bubble risk appears greatest in seven global cities, with Munich the most vulnerable, followed by Toronto, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Vancouver and Paris. Major imbalances are also found in locations such as London, San Francisco, Tokyo and Stockholm, while valuations are considered stretched in Los Angeles, Sydney and Geneva.

Exclusive video of pro-China protester in Trudeau Liberal candidate’s re-election camp
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=35&v=O7zkl6LvRP0

Meet Eileen Chen, CEO of a Richmond, B.C. advertising and event production company with two offices in Mainland China. Chen waved China’s flag, sang China’s national anthem and shouted at Hong Kong supporters at a pro-China counter-protest on Aug. 17. Less than a month later, she admitted she was working on the re-election campaign for Liberal incumbent Joe Peschisolido.

We wouldn’t tolerate a bunch of scumbags waving Nazi flags, would we?

She is a Chinese soldier deployed on foreign soil, it is obvious based on the logistics, tactics and actions. One might only wonder how many of those troops are already strategically stationed across Canada with the stronghold in Richmond? Anyway, they aren’t a problem but those hypothetical racists pointing out danger and anomaly.

“Global debt surges to highest level in peacetime”, Financial Times

https://www.ft.com/content/661f5c8a-dec9-11e9-9743-db5a370481bc

“We are likely to see central banks continue market interventions that have enabled governments to take on more debt since the crisis, perhaps even financing spending directly with so-called “helicopter money”.

“We’re actually not a million miles away from this. By their aggressive actions over the last decade, central banks have effectively trapped themselves into continually intervening in government bond markets. They’re arguably beyond the point of no return.”

“The NDP Housing Plan Is The Least Bad, But Still Makes Housing More Expensive”, Better Dwelling

https://betterdwelling.com/the-ndp-housing-plan-is-the-least-bad-but-still-makes-housing-more-expensive/

“Only 17 days until the election, and all parties are promising helicopter money for housing. The NDP plan, with rental subsidies, is probably the most well intended one. Rather than using tax dollars to help buy investments, they’re focusing on core needs. Unfortunately, every time you inject a large amount of cash into a market, it creates a ripple effect. The ripple effect flows through the whole market, not just a targeted segment. Even if they’re only looking to help low income renters, there’s broad implications for both non-subsidized renters and homebuyers.”

“Why Andrew Scheer’s plan won’t actually make life more affordable”, Yahoo Business

https://ca.finance.yahoo.com/news/andrew-scheer-wont-make-life-more-affordable-174403119.html

One of the biggest issues — especially for young voters — is housing affordability. Scheer has pledged to scale back the mortgage stress test and bring back 30-year mortgages.

“We can’t simply assume we can solve the housing affordability crisis by encouraging younger Canadians to borrow more,” Paul Kershaw, UBC professor and founder of Generation Squeeze said.”

Today’s Housing crisis is easy to understand. Through Quantitative Easing, which triggered years of cascading refinancing, the great Boomer Bulge, went into the future and pulled that money back to today. They had to have their gluttonous travel and over built and renovated homes, and generally overindulge lifestyles! Making living for those who didn’t partake in this debt fuelled madness… very difficult. So now it’s all hands on deck, to save the glut whales overindulgences! Am I right? Wrong? Should I finance an electric car because the television whispers in my ear that it contributes to the affordability issue? Uh, no it doesn’t. But you can twist anything around to confirm a bias. And that bias is Conceit, that I can go into the future and use tomorrow’s money today, followed by establishing a crime propaganda program to Rob the… Read more »

“Canadian Politicians Promise To Bring More Risk To Housing: Part One, The Liberals”, Better Dwelling
https://betterdwelling.com/canadian-politicians-promise-to-bring-more-risk-to-housing-part-one-the-liberals/

“The Liberals will expand the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive (FTHBI) if re-elected. The plan lowers monthly payments, by letting you buy less of the house. The government kicks in up to 10% of the price, and you pay back their share with your profit/loss. Only households making less than $120,000 per year, can qualify. If re-elected, they plan on expanding the program for Toronto, Vancouver, and Victoria. The cap on household income will increase to $150,000 per year in those regions.”

“The program was helicopter money to the real estate industry, to prop up, or inflate, prices. By providing a part of the down payment, the government is pulling demand forward.”

“Canada’s Conservative Housing Plan Is So Bad, Even The Party Used To Hate It’, Better Dwelling

https://betterdwelling.com/canadas-conservative-housing-plan-is-so-bad-even-the-party-used-to-hate-it/

“Only 18 days until the election, and every party has a terrible housing plan. One of the more interesting ones comes from the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC). The key point is extending the maximum amortization for mortgages. This is a fancy way of saying they want to let buyers pay their mortgage over a longer period of time. The odd thing here is the government before this one spent a lot of time explaining the risks of extended amortizations. That government was led by, *drumroll* the Conservative Party of Canada. Yeah… it’s weird.”

“The IMF said in a report this week that well-meaning policies in Canada to improve affordability by increasing a households’ capacity to borrow most often have the opposite effect. By studying the dynamics of house prices in 11 Canadian cities, the IMF determined that households being able to borrow more money has quickly been reflected in higher home prices. “
