Keen Talk @ Google 2012 – don’t trust an economist

Flattr this!

You can’t go past the Google team for an intelligent and engaging audience. I spoke there 2 years ago to an audience of about 100, and a similar sized group turned up yesterday. There were some quite challenging questions on my views about the current state of the world economy, so the talk went well over the allotted hour

Below is the video of the talk; the sound quality is a bit poor (I recommend using earphones to listen to it), but there is also an audio recording below that may be easier to understand. If there are enough complaints(!), we’ll blend the separately recorded audio with the video.

    Some questions hard to hear but presentation has no sound problems.

    There are no doubt some housing pockets that are worse than others. I was made aware of waterfront property prices on the Gold Coast being hit hard. Here is one example:

    Price falls on some are already below the 40% mark in just over 3 years. How low will they go?

    An interesting take looking at age of population in China to explain Housing bubble:

    A slightly off topic observation, Steve.
    Comic sans…

    I know you would be using it because it is an exceptionally readable font. It is however ridiculed because it’s pretty much the “my first font” of document writing.

    If you want an equally readable font, once upon a time I tested each of the windows fonts at Size 7. There was one single winner in the entire range of fonts. It is readable at that and any other size, and proffessional: Tahoma.

    Give it a whirl 😉
