    We have to be aware that everything becomes difficult nowadays. Prices of commodities, rentals went up. I guess,the negative effects of bad or rather slow economy happens everywhere.

    They are as a general rule rising interest rates = lower commodities prices. This is mainly due to the associated carry cost (something that only affects commodities as a financial product) - I will go into if you want.

    Prices are high because of short run asset demand & fairly high extraction cost

    Just casually noticing that they are allocating more money to Brexit than to the NHS.

    Still, they're predictable: the best way to solve the housing crisis is to stimulate demand and hence increase property prices even more.

    Not only is it a stupid idea, it's not even their stupid idea. Corbyn proposed something similar a few months ago iirc.

    Also...
