Do you remember Financial Planner from the TOS?

Thanks for that. I always liked Mr Davis' posts and  his occasional media appearances where IIRC he usually terrified the MSM by predicting house price drops!

This is the thing he is a financial adviser who got his biggest call extremely wrong.

Was his call before or after the QE money printing cash injections from the BoE ?

I seem to recall it was before..  in which case I think it was a pretty good call.   Prices did fall..  and would have fallen much further if it wasn't for unprecidented money printing to prop up nominal asset prices. 

Separately,  the gold calls were right (not sure if JD ever jumped on that ship).. I never had the balls for that speculative trade though.

The bad call was runaway inflation as a result of the QE.

JD was alright, became something of a spokesman for TOS.

We shouldn't have been defying gravity! What no-one expected was for governments and politicians to do what they did to keep the plates spinning and to avoid the long overdue correction to house prices - short-term pain yes, but longer term better for the country. ZIRP, various house price props, bank bailouts,"privatising profits and socialising losses", "austerity"...

Where are we now? Emperor's New Clothes land!

While we haven’t seen it in the UK yet, I’m not sure that genie is back in it’s bottle.

Seems very bearish just after. The bad call was not accepting the levels the LIBLABCON would go to to reinflate the bubble.

He used to appear on Northern Ireland programmes quite a bit. I remember one audience was quite annoyed when he said their houses were going to halve in value - like he was personally robbing them of half their 'well earned' money.

I listened to the podcast and quite enjoyed it. It's a sort of 'Dosbods Radio Show' with commentary on 'PC gone mad' articles in the news, general classical liberal/libertarian stuff and economic matters, delivered in a sort of Andrew Neil style. It would be nice if he could break it up a bit with some interviews or perhaps some guest speakers etc but all in all I enjoyed it. It seems to have improved somewhat from an earlier edition I listened to, where it got a bit ranty about Scottish independence.
