This is a really interesting 1 minute video about the top economies throughout history. Chinas economy now ranks as the world’s biggest in purchasing-power-parity terms. But it is merely regaining a title that it has held for much of recorded history, as our video shows. The brief interlude in which America overshadowed it is now over. Source - The Economist

Please see below a video interview with Kevin Green (split into two parts) – debatably one of the UK’s most well known property experts not only due to his appearance in Channel 4’s Secret Millionaire show but also his well-known wealth training programmes and honest, up-front approach to investment. Edward Lane caught up with Kevin and discussed the importance of public promotion as a property investor; the current housing market; his thoughts on the future; consumer affordability levels; his advice for newbies / the risk averse; his own investment strategies; lease options and the recent controversy surrounding their use; buying repossessed property (creating a win-win house sale) as well as his wealth training programme. Part 1 of 2 Part 2 of 2 Thanks to Property Investors Hub for sharing this video.

Google maps is not a tool that people would often associate as being useful for helping build their property portfolio or even just to help search for a new property to live in.

I’m sure you will have used Google maps, or one of the various other map tools before. But if not it is very easy. Simply enter the Postcode or street name of the property you are investigating in the search box. So how can Google Maps help? The way to use google maps as a tool is to become a detective. You are looking at clues that will either give you a positive view or a potentially negative view about a...
