VGU, do you really believe this crap, or do you just think there are still enough wealthy fools out here that will buy into it?

NO ASSET IN THE INVESTMENT WORLD HAS FAILED TO GO DOWN AT SOME POINT, IF I AM WRONG HERE, LOOK FORWARD TO LEARNING SOMETHING NEW.

So what are the lines and the "X" in the rectangle?

I take VGU to be serious whether he is spamming or entertaining and I thought perhaps I have missed knowing about some asset that never decreases in value.

we BELIEVE he's a troll,

He could (I still hold out the slim chance) be completely sincere in his beliefs (although for this to be true, he's seriously over the top - million $$$$ homes cheap?)

VGUP is not a TROLL!

He is misunderstood, reviled and disbelieved, and yet he's really more like MOSES - trying to lead the recalcitrant and dumbass Americanites to the promised land of Canaan-ada. Far from the arid deserts of the Federal Reserve's Giant Cattle Pen of The Lower Forty-Eight, to a place of verdant green, with gleaming towers reaching up into the ethereal clouds of "big-payola". And the gleaming Vancouver-land streets! Those streets can be seen from a nouveau riche SE Asian Industrialists' Satellite - from five miles up - paved in cobblestones cast out of pure gold, which the Vancouverites are so blase' and patrician about that they don't even try to dig them up and trade them in for down payments on more condos!

VGUP is like MOSES, steadfastly leading the errant flock of sheep, who keep baaa-ing and bleating dyspeptically about "overvaluation" and "ponzi markets", while he patiently gathers up the stray sheep-lings and leads the shuffling downmarket US bleaters, the mindless bleating flock of doubters, ever closer to the EMERALD CITY of Vancouverland in CANAAN-ADA! No great leader or high priest is ever understood in their time. Their lot is to be reviled, scorned, denounced, pilloried and ridiculed, until TIME the great TRUTH-REVEALER, gradually REVEALS the TRUTH (OK that sounded a little clunky, but whatever).

And that TRUTH is a Vancouver-Land where the dwellings rise up like vigorous beanstalks, dazzlingly right up into the stratosphere - a place so high, and so strewn about with juicy EQUITY, that the poor mangy sheeple south of the Canaan-adan border are reduced to mindlessly milling about, waggling their sheeplike furry ears and bleating plaintively, while they dream sheeplike dreams about that big equity-check-out-counter in the sky, where the equity falls ripe from the trees (or was it, "falls ripe from the condo towers"?). The patrician Canaan-adans meanwhile just look aloofly at this VGUP, unimpressed by his understatements as to their real wealth, which is reputedly up there in the gazillions.

But their scabrous and wretched, money grubbin southern brethren, the Americaan-adans look at VGUP's golden city in the clouds, disguising with much barking and baying and snarling and grunting, their scabrous unmitigated greed - NOT at the high-rise gleaming condo-towers, or at the civilized amenities of this world class metropolis. These American vermin are hungrily eyeing those Vancouver cobblestones - made of pure gold! They reputedly weigh about 8-10 pounds EACH, and the Vancouver-land constables are so patrician and noble-minded and unsuspecting, that any cunning Americaan-adan grunting piglet could just sort of sneak in there and pry up a couple of Vancouver-land cobblestones and go home with this booty and live for the rest of his natural born days in cheesy American style on the cash proceeds.

These Americaan-adans are the real dregs. Always grubbing around for moolah and staring with little piglet eyes at the ground, for a "nugget", rather than casting their gaze in a more intelligent fashion heavenwards, where they might observe the condo tower penthouses that VGUP MOSES is pointing them to. He is great, noble, selfless and visionary, pointing the Americaan-adan mangy vermin towards a better life, yet they remain transfixed, stupidly staring at those Vancouver-land golden cobblestones with their trademark expressions of greed and fascination. Fools!

If you decide that the "No. 1 City in the World" is too much, head across on the BC Ferry to Vancouver Island. Somewhere out past Victoria Starving Steve apparently has a log cabin retreat that sounds pretty nice.

Oooops! This can't be the same Vancouver, can it? Must be a big mistake. :eek:

Maybe Shiller's actually talking about Vancouver, WA? :confused:

Then again, maybe not...:(

Well it was a good gig while it lasted... :p



Canada may face housing bust: Shiller (http://www.financialpost.com/news/story.html?id=853094)

Jacqueline Thorpe, Financial Post
Published: Wednesday, October 01, 2008

The Canadian housing market could face a similar housing bust to the United States, particularly in more bubbly markets as Vancouver and Calgary, said Robert Shiller, the University of Yale professor who predicted both the 1990s stock market boom and bust and the US housing slump.

Mr. Shiller, co-founder of the S&P Case/Shiller Home Price Index, said psychology is the primary driver of bubbles and it appears that Canada has been caught up with home buying fever just as the United States and other countries around the world.

Asked whether that meant Canada could face a similar bust Mr. Shiller said: "Yes, especially in places that went up a lot like Vancouver and Calgary. I don't think Toronto has been quite as extreme."

Mr. Shiller said there was a natural connection between the United States and Canada.

"I would be surprised that the bubble that appeared in the United States and elsewhere didn't appear in Canada," he said in an interview with the Financial Post. "It's psychology, I think that drives it...
