Here is what a real bubble looks like

Median household income in England is slighltly higher than 25000 pounds (Wikipedia gives 24700 pounds for 2004). Average house price is now 191 556 pounds. A pound is worth roughly 2 dollars. So the average American house has to cost some $360K-380K in order for us to catch up with England in terms of affordability.

I suspect that Londoners derive as little comfort from the relative "affordability" of their national averages as we New Yorkers - from our own national average of $225,000 or so. When I read the news about falling prices and compare it with our local trends, I want to walk out on Broadway and scream: "Take me to America"!
