Felt the last one down here in Laguna Beach.

I think this is probably more of a California thing than the rest of the country; but I think this has its own risks.  China's real estate market is basically insane, I can't even imagine what that will do here once that is accounted for.

Vancouver worth looking at as an example of what *has* happened already. From experience it's not a China thing, maybe not even an Asian thing but it's certainly a "black" money thing.

Is it appropriate to add an entire country?

If so Australia, almost 30 years without a recession, second longest run after Japan I think.

It's coming, will come as somewhat as a shock to everybody under 50 odd years old, that's the majority of people by a fair margin.

"The median house price in Sydney has not been less than $1 million since March 2015."

And most of those people have mentally "banked" those "profits", they've gone now. The best hope is a quick, short, sharp recession and maybe a bounce back. I think a long slow decline is more likely, death by a thousand cuts with Asia holding the knives.

From a (my) business perspective a quick, short, sharp recession would be good.

>"Russia=good. Obama=idiot. Bashar al-Assad=benevolent leader. John Kerry=dunce. Vladimir Putin=greatest leader in the history of statecraft."

To be fair you good make a very good argument for at least the majority of those. Just sayin.

I think you give us humans too much credit, manipulation is easy.

>Related?

Maybe slightly but I think the smoking ban hit hard plus young un's nowdays get drunk at home (cheaper) and then go to the pub.

And as seen on twitter... "Americans eat like they have free health care."

I'm at 2. but it isn't any different, you still the same person.

When I wake up I think what woolly mammoth I need to kill today.

It's very hard to turn the switch off. I'm getting there though.

>Your bullshit filter was working well there Mark.

It's a curse not a power.

I agree with you both but people are more educated about food, I do think the health aspect is important.
