It seems they did believe that the “end was near” for the hot real estate market, so they sold short.
I was laughing my ass off at that statement . Well at least it's better than the jewish lightning that often strikes struggling empires in times of need for cash flow . I really don't unerstand why they don't just move to some other country where the land is cheap along with the labor because people are starving . Maybe they will be made fat and happy with all that spiritual food . Jeeze they wouldn't even have to force people to live in poverty then .
