As we push towards the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, it appears that the Brits are getting an early start to their training. This chart of British housing prices formed a perfect pike, and is now in free fall...

This morning's UK home price report came in at -12.7% year over year. Since this was an August report, this is relatively current compared to most of the US housing data that we've been issued.

The UK housing bubble popping may very well be louder than the one in the USA. That's very hard to imagine. But facts are what they are, and the race to the bottom of this cesspool of consumer leverage is heating up.

It is global this time, indeed.
