Gerard Minack's Opinions

People miss the point that we're hugely wrapped up in the global credit crunch because we are one of the world's largest issuers of capital, with the most over-priced finance sector in the developed world and a rickety housing sector. People think we're Teflon coated because of links to China. I don't think that's true.

There's a word for a financial asset that's over-valued by 40%, so let's use it: housing is a bubble. Buying an asset that's over-priced never ends well... In my view, Australian house prices are expensive on every value metric. They are expensive relative to history, and expensive relative to houses in comparable countries.

Australian houses are much more overvalued than US houses; indeed on some measures, our houses are arguably the most expensive in the world. They're also less affordable.
