    When and by how much is unknown. One cant make financial decision based on a time event- hence think long term. So I bought at the peak of 2006 , its up by over 100% , why does it matter to me?

    Interesting to look back ten years and ponder on the dubious prognostications of the prophets of gloom.
    With all the Draconian new laws for residential rental LLs, perhaps AirBnB would be better? To avoid any hassle in Hawke's Bay, consult Be My Hostess. Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!

    It seems like we are going to have no inflation and super low interest rates for the next eon or so.
    This is the new normal.
    I guess this time it really was different.

    Is a guess the same as a prediction, Bob?

    But if you check the graphs of the Italian provinces you will see the older houses are still depreciating, unlike the rest of Europe.
    Italians are not DIYers. They prefer to buy new builds.

    I suspect this is all a lie.
    And it's low inflation in name only.

    The cost of introducing more paper money into any system must be inflation.
    by logic alone, since true inflation is the amount of goods* relative to the amount of dollars.
    10 dollars divided by 10 goods, equals an inflation of one.
    20 dollars divided by 10 goods equals an inflation of two.
    and so on.

    Note, different sections of society will feel that inflation differently.
    It's significant and it's there alright, possibly hidden in the averages.

    * and services etc.

    It's a pretty realistic lie then.
    If you can find some inflation then grab it with both hands and give it to the Reserve Bank governor - he hasn't seen any for a long time.

    People seem to think that printing several trillion dollars over the last few years will cause a lot of inflation.
    Doesn't seem to have happened which has confounded a lot of people.
    We're still waiting for someone to come up with a plausible explanation.
    If your definition of inflation is true then I suspect the amount of dollars is not as it appears.

    There are several ways to hide inflation.
    I won't go into them.

    Apart from hiding it, there is one other thing that could be happening.
    If all that printed money was drained out of the country as soon as it was put in, that would cause low inflation or stagflation.

    I'll let you figure out who could be doing that and how.
