Bubble Radio / TV: Give advance notice here!!!


#11681

Coming up on Pat Kenny at 10am: Tom Parlon to talk about house costs, esp the kite being floated by FG that VAT could be lowered. Also should Developers pay development fees anymore now that there are Property taxes in places!


#11682

you’re not wrong -
what a headline “I Have To Return Some Videotapes”

not just clickbait - far, far more dishonest and malignant than that


#11683

Pat now has a guy from Suicide Prevention on to discuss the impact of mortgage debt problems on suicide rates in the country, in light of the Sunday Indo article about the farmer who killed himself


#11684

In depth, no doubt, review of housing crisis on Prime Time now.


#11685

Tom Parlon alert. Jesus that tool should have been up against a wall 7 years ago instead of still knocking around giving his expert opinion on macro-prudential measures.


#11686

country Tom alter! And if that doesn’t merit an alert I don’t know what does


#11687

According to Tom, shur’ the help-to-buy scheme is important to help FTBers that DO NOT MEET THE CENTRAL BANK CRITERIA to get “over the line” (his words).

Also, he says he’ll support help-to-buy as it’s worked great in the UK.
Wow - because the UK is an amazingly healthy, well-balanced, not at all overpriced market… Christ.

Is the property bubble back?

Insight, UTV…on now

1 of the 3 pieces on tonight’s Claire Byrne show is from Edmund Honohan, Master of the High Court (brother of Patrick) who will be offering his solution to the Housing crisis


#11691

Watched it. The guy’s a fruitcake. I see from the Repossessions thread this isn’t his first stab at it. Will take it up there.

#11693

Coming up now on Sean O’Rourke show:
The farmer who had his cattle sold yesterday in the forced sale by ACC, with Jerry Beades & Co protesting otuside


#11694

Sinn Fein TD on the radio this morning talking about cost overruns for modular homes and asking that councils be allowed spend the money on buying existing stock instead
todayfm.com/Modular-homes-cost-240000

Those figures would be a great political point scoring opportunity if you completely ignore the fundamentals that adding housing stock does something to alleviate the housing crisis whereas adding competition for a scarce resource greatly exacerbates it.


#11695

That link reports them as temporary buildings, but are they not permanent buildings using modular construction which will be used to temporarily house those in need of a more permanent solution…probably not as snappy


#11696

We need a new word to describe the Irish version of modular housing


#11697

IIRC there was a good insight towards the end of this programme - something along the lines of housing should be used to house people, not treated as an investment. Or used as a method to get ordinary citizens - through higher house prices - to keep the country’s entire financial system afloat.


#11698

There was a guy on morning Ireland the other day from DIT, Lorcan Sur (?), I liked the cut of his jib, he was commenting on property related stuff…about vulture funds evicting tenants, he said the problem was with security of tenure rather than with property owners selling their assets and a few others points well made


#11699
