  1. Interesting comments during the Q&A about the coming housing bubble crash. I’ve just come back from Perth, WA where average house prices have already plummeted more than 30% over the last thirteen years. My 70 year old cousin is $1 million in debt from two bad housing investments. At Safety Bay water front home prices have crashed from $900k to $600k in four years. The city seems ripe for a retrosuburbia revolution! And yet, people in Perth haven’t changed there lifestyles at all, or so it appears. I wonder what will be the tipping point for people to make even small changes to there living arrangements?
