Here he uses the term bubble: I'm int he camp with Rich that the US is "mostly" not in a bubble.

These comps actually lend credibility to the argument that the US is relatively fairly valued:

The chart will look different once you adjust for GDP growth. Since '97 US is up 25%, Ireland is up 70%.

That is so true. Since the 1990s globalization created so much wealth around the world. From Moscow to Beijing, etc....

Irish econ stats are distorted because it is a tax haven. A lot of the economic activity reported for Ireland happened elsewhere.

Dublin seems nice and it will soon be the only major English native speaking city in the EU.

Comparing the USA to the UK: last year the UK housing bubble was predicted to finally burst. With half a year behind it's still difficult to say what will happen. The situation has grown even more uncertain with the hung parliament. This could see house price growth slow further (the worst levels for the past 4 years https://tranio.com/united-kingdom/analyt... ) But still the overall lack of supply will continue to support prices. I'd say that the bubble will have to wait till the next year, though not much promise for investors in England anyway.
