    So in summary, Japan had massive credit-financed speculative bubbles which burst, leading to deflation. Seems the similarities are greater than the differences.Stories relating the differing attitudes towards shares and real estate are irrelevant on the basis that prior to their crashes, the Japanese people had the same beliefs as Australians…[Read more]

    Whoops, I forgot to respond to "are australian banks short of capital at the moment".What our banks are critically short of is liquid assets. Only seven tenths of one per cent (0.7%) of all bank assets are held in truly liquid assets – RBA deposits and government securities.

    have you visited the site lately?http://www.onthehouse.com.au/sold_info/info used to be free, now is $5 per year.

    Nope. Just use the search box on the home page:http://www.onthehouse.com.au/home/Put in the suburb you want, and all the sold price records show up. Cheers, F. [cowboy2]

    Why $5 per year? Just enter the suburb (or specific property) in the search, and previous sales show up!
