Economist Magazine says Australian housing overvalued by 50%!!!

I started reading this week’s Economist mag yesterday and the lead article is about the asset bubbles that are appearing all around the world thanks to low interest rates. Article can be found here for subscribers.

In terms of housing the article suggested that the US is at fair value, whilst Britain is 30% overvalued, and Australia, Spain, and Hong Kong are 50% overvalued based on the current level of rental yields. Commodities were mentioed as being overvalued and as with my last post, so too are Emergin Markets.

“Today the prices of many assets are being held up by unsustainable fiscal and monetary stimulus. Something has to give”

I guess I’m off to a bearish start to the day today.
