Andrew Palmer, the Finance Editor of The Economist joins us to talk about his recently published Special Report on Property. His article starts with a strong statement: Property is widely seen as a safe asset. It is arguably the most dangerous of all. In this podcast, he talks about the importance accorded to property as an asset class and the reasons for its mercurial valuation especially in countries like USA, Spain, Ireland, etc which are currently in a housing soup.
In this chat, he refrains from using complex terms; that's not surprising considering his role as a jargon fighter at The Economist.
