What a bleedin’ sap, eh. XX

That article also missed out on Greece and Spain it seems.
Hardly funky.

I sense that the send must be nigh to another recession at this stage as data all seems to be meaningless.

Will the Canadian Housing Crash Materialize in 2019?

Karen Thomas, CFA | January 27, 2019 |

A Canadian housing crash seems to have already begun.

Canadian real estate sales fell over 11% in 2018, with mortgage rates and risk rising. Home prices are falling, and the stock market has been falling.

I’m calling peak-Vancouver now (although probably too late).

Joke?

Avocado Toast is the single greatest tragedy of our time.
