Wouldn't you normally cut interest rates in an attempt to alleviate this?

The two markets are not directly comparable. Don't expect this to happen here.

Please keep in mind that as part of the "news" there is a certain amount "news" that is non news. I classify this story in the paper as just a story. It is not really news at all but is just filler.

I am reminded of a statement Heln Caldacott (pardon teh spelling) in her movie If You Love This Planet. She states that if you explode a nuclear bomb in outerspace (she gives the size and perhaps defines the space, but I think it was just the size) then the area affected would be as big as a large portion of the USA. This sounds really scarey until you realize that the last time you visited the USA you were not in outerspace. In other words "observation" or whatever you would call it is not really applicable.

I am not just saying this because I have recently started building a house. I can tell you though that my opinion as a person from North America, don't apply the US housing problem to NZ. It is a real apples to oranges comparision.
