It was all so obvious(to me) that something was badly wrong, so why did not those who should have blown the whistle did not(my answer), they were doing so well & did not want it to stop or appear to be party poopers.
I first bought a house in 1966 & sold in1973 for 7x what I had paid, but had spent money to improve with central heating, large garage & many other things. this now seems ridiculous & I have heard last time it was sold about 200x that which I had originally paid.
In 1982 bought & then sold in 2005 for 15 x, of course I had done a lot of work in the meanwhile, but as I said at the time by 2000 I could no longer have been able to afford to buy my own house, so could not see how others could unless with enormous crippling Mortgages.
I ALSO THOUGHT DURING MUCH OF THIS TIME THAT PEOPLE WERE GROSSLY OVERPAID FOR WHAT THEY DID( NOT OFTEN A GOOD DAYS WORK). i PERSONALLY CAN NOT UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY IS PAID MORE THAN £100,000 IT IS NOT FEASABLE THAT THEY ARE WORTH IT UNLESS IT IS THEIR OWN COMPANY.
