    House prices jump by almost 12% in the year to May

    Nobody could have foreseen this.

    Just like the Celtic Bubble collapse, except in reverse.

    Barclays confirm talks to make Dublin its EU hub post-Brexit

    This is huge.

    There is going to be a massive boom in Dublin.

    I suppose that would drive house prices up sufficiently for the speculators to release some housing into the market and quit whingeing about there being no profit in building a house.

    Quote Originally Posted by Volatire View Post

    At 69Ż pence, the euro has fallen against sterling to a level last in September 2007. This is significant, because Northern Rock collapsed in September 2007, signalling the beginning of the banking and sovereign debt crises. At one point, the euro almost reached parity with sterling. The reversal shows that the UK has dealt with these problems, while the EZ still struggles to do so.

    There are several reasons for the strength of sterling against the euro

    • strong UK GDP performance vs EZ
    • failure of the EZ to deal with the Greek crisis
    • ECB QE program is ongoing, when BOE's has ceased
    • prospect of higher interest rates in the UK


    Pound soars to eight-year high as Carney talks up rate rises - Telegraph




    As seen from the chart, Ireland's GDP growth has matched the UK's and Germany's in recent years. However, Ireland is uniquely placed in the EZ to benefit from weaker EURGBP.

    Volatire would like to make some predictions:

    • Irish growth will be by far the strongest in the EZ in coming years
    • Irish growth will exceed UK growth
    • This growth will happen without excessive buildup of credit
    • Since this looks more like the 1990's than the 2000's, pundits will begin to talk about Celtic Tiger II.


    Two further remarks of a political nature:

    • none of this has anything to do with government policy, as the Irish government has no control whatsoever over EURGBP.
    • whoever wins the next general election stands to reap a large dividend
    Things have changed a bit since.

    Dublin is streets ahead of EU rivals as City firms plan for Brexit relocation

    The inability of the Irish to see the wood for the trees is astonishing

    A tsunami of investment, high-end jobs and opportunity is set to hit Dublin.

    Citigroup and Bank of America prepare Dublin Brexit plans

    The fŘckwits in Dublin City Council and Government Buildings need to get off their asses.

    There is a long shopping list of Dublin infrastructure that needs to be advanced quickly. Metro North, fibre, water/waste.

    Moreover, there are large tracts of centrally located dilapidated crap that need to be developed and brought into play. Much of it needs to be napalmed.

    Time to stop bullsh´tting about homelessness and embrace prosperity and the Great Brexit Boom.

    High speed trains coming into Dublin every morning would be a good start.
