Will the housing soufflé rise twice?

Australia's housing debt has hit the historic highs seen in Japan and the US before their property bubbles burst. Will there be a similar deleveraging trigger here?

One of the advantages of being overseas right now is that it takes less effort to avoid listening to the insipid discourse that passes for political debate during this Australian election. As Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott compete over who can be more obnoxious to refugees, I find myself pining for the days of sensible and humane policies under Malcolm Fraser. As politicians make themselves the butt of their own unintentional suppository jokes, I pine for someone who could deliver a killer line against his opponent, rather than against himself: Paul Keating.
