Bernard Salt argues that B.A.N.A.N.A.S (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anybody) reflects current public sentiment toward development.

In his presentation at Congress 2011, Salt argues that to change sentiment there needs to be a strategic and unified approach toward publishing the positives that stem from development.

Dr Rob Lang, general manager of the Parramatta City Council, and Guy Gibson, general manager of Queensland Communities at Lend Lease, join Salt with their views.

This is very disturbing.

KPMG's Bernard Salt is advocating the creation of groups of paid shills and spruikers, backed by big business and the property industry, to 'counter the negativity' by posting on opinion pages of newspapers, forums, social media, twitter and the blogosphere. He wants these groups to take on the 'doomsayers' by seeking out and 'balancing extreme views'. He says individuals can't do it but there are ways to fund groups to do it.

His guests say the property council used to do this a lot to promote the property industry but vacated that space in recent years and he recommends they return with broad campaigns at the PR level to fight negative sentiment in the property market.

It makes you wonder whether they've already been successful in doing this, and the bulls and spruikers on forums like this one are bankrolled by the real estate industry and big business to sow seeds of uncertainty and doubt among the dominant (and correct IMO) bearish viewpoint. Would it surprise you if our one-eyed permabulls and their socks are puppets of the propaganda arm of the real estate industry, here to manipulate public opinion and drown out reality? Who to trust?

Are you sure? They post very differently? Frank is very brash and confrontational. Shadow is relentless in his persistence, and will not allow even the smallest disagreement to go by without arguing the toss.
Whenever you have an argument with someone, there comes a moment where you must ask yourself, whatever your political persuasion, 'am I the Nazi?'

Sadly, it's true. I expect Strindberg is the same. Here's the Credit Crunch thread where they slipped up.

They tried to play it down and make a joke of it, but it was obvious what had just happened.

Earthsta reported a similar problem recently, Credit Crunch links redirecting to Prosper. Are others experiencing this? The link goes to Credit Crunch for me.

Australian Property Forum is an economics and finance forum dedicated to discussion of Australian and global real estate markets and macroeconomics, including house prices, housing affordability, and the likelihood of a property crash. Is there an Australian housing bubble? Will house prices crash, boom or stagnate? Is the Australian property market a pyramid scheme or Ponzi scheme? Can house prices really rise forever? These are the questions we address on Australian Property Forum, the premier real estate site for property bears, bulls, investors, and speculators. Members may also discuss matters related to finance, modern monetary theory (MMT), debt deflation, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Ethereum and Ripple, property investing, landlords, tenants, debt consolidation, reverse home equity loans, the housing shortage, negative gearing, capital gains tax, land tax and macro prudential regulation.

Forum Rules: The main forum may be used to discuss property, politics, economics and finance, precious metals, crypto currency, debt management, generational divides, climate change, sustainability, alternative energy, environmental topics, human rights or social justice issues, and other topics on a case by case basis.
