I never said everything is rosey. Things are bad of course, but that goes for most of the countries in the Western world.

And I dont expect things to be getting better soon, not in Spain, the UK or the US. We are going to have 10 years of no growth, best get used to it!

Oh and can't wait for the property to keep getting back to reasonable levels. Hopefully we can buy a nice family home with a nice bit of land in the next year or two.

Always good to look on the bright side

You should not belive what the crooks in Madrid tell you , also you will find that property will only get cheaper if the the economy gets worse, house prices in the UK are stable if not very slightly increasing ,sadly not the case in Spain, people need to get realistic.

Crooks in Madrid? GDP figures are varified by a number of international organisations, economists and approved accountants!

Re, property, that is not true at all. Prices in London are down 10-20% from peak (2007), while prices in the North and less desirable parts of the South East are down by 30% from peak.

In Spain, prices are down 10-20% from peak, EXCEPT in the Costa areas where there are lots of foreigners who "Bought into the dream". Here, prices are down 50% from peak, at least!

Yes and I regularly read the trade press, visit property websites in both countries and talk to the estate agents.

If you think property prices have increased in the past 4 years in the UK then you are deluded and obviously know nothing

Well, you are wrong again. You couldnt be more wrong. Bit of a habit of yours

My OH and I could both retire now if we wanted, as long as we rented a cheap 2 bed flat - and we only started working 7 years ago

Not that we earn big money, but saying you are rich enough to be semi-retired means nothing

You really have a poor sense of judgement. What does the price of farmland got to do with anything? Or the price of prime London property in Q4 2010?

You clearly do not understand how to interpret data

With all due respect what has your play ground squabble have to do with the thread, I think we all understand the concept of economics although interpretations of it can be very different.

As the thread is about getting rid of accumulated stuff not how screwed up the world is why not make suggestions as has been mentioned. Hold a garden sale, friday ads or classifieds in Brit papers they may not be very successful depends on how much you want, how much people will pay and what condition it is in.

People seem to want something for nothing but are not willing to give it away themselves, swings and roundabouts. Ask a fair price and do not haggle, pay a fair price and stop being a cheap skate and both parties will be happy, but then again maybe I am away with the fairies, but at least I am happy with my lot in life and can sleep at night.
