Oxford University vows not to make same mistake with Covid vaccine as it did with penicillin

Oxford scientists are at the forefront of the global race to end the pandemic, with the Prime Minister hailing the group as being “on the verge” of creating a successful vaccine. But the university’s vice-chancellor has vowed that it will not make the same mistake as it did with penicillin in the 1940s. Prof Louise Richardson said that when drawing up an agreement with the pharmaceutical giant AstraZenica over the manufacture of the vaccine, the university did not want to be party to any kind of “profiteering”. However, they also did not want to “repeat the mistake of the early 40s when Oxford academics discovered penicillin but handed all rights off to American companies”. Addressing Oxford’s governing body this week, Prof Richardson explained: “We required that any partner would agree that a

Boris Johnson’s 95% mortgages will put Britain back on course for a house price crash | Housing

This week Boris Johnson boasted that his government would “turn generation rent into generation buy” via a return to 95% mortgages for first-time buyers. In other words, easier credit to help more people buy houses.

To say we have been here before would be an understatement of epic proportions. Since the days of Margaret Thatcher, every UK government has sought to cut through the housing affordability problem with the easy and politically popular option of subsidising the demand for homeownership. Generally, this has taken the form of liberalising mortgage regulation or providing direct government subsidies for first-time buyers, most recently the various help-to-buy schemes. All have failed to bring down the price of homes.

More demand for homeownership leads to more more credit flowing into an inherently limited supply of homes. Most housing in the UK is provided at market rates by private landlords and private sector developers. These

LONDON (Reuters) – British house prices rose by the most in four years in September when they jumped by an annual 5.0%, mortgage lender Nationwide said on Wednesday as a sharp rebound in the country’s housing market accelerated.

The increase was stronger than the median forecast of a 4.5% rise in a Reuters poll of economists and average prices hit a fresh record high.

Britain’s housing market has boomed since the coronavirus lockdown with a rush by some buyers for bigger houses outside of urban areas in the new work-from-home age combining with pent-up demand.

Nationwide said about 10% of people it surveyed in September were in the process of moving as a result of the pandemic, rising to 15% in London. A further 18% of those asked said

Kiwi parents committed to collecting the full catalogue have adopted a ‘work smarter not harder’ approach and founded numerous community Facebook groups to trade and on-sell excess seedlings of one type in exchange for the plants they don’t have.

Trade Me spokesperson Millie Silvester said the individual seedlings and sets are selling for “big bucks” online.

British house price boom to fizzle out next year: Reuters poll

By Jonathan Cable

LONDON (Reuters) – British home prices will rise 2.0% this year following a post-lockdown boom in the housing market, according to a Reuters poll, marking a sharp turnaround in views from a 5.0% fall predicted three months ago.

Britain’s economy shrank more than 20% in the second quarter after the government forced businesses to close and citizens to stay home, but it is expected to rebound with 15.8% growth this quarter as some restrictions have been relaxed.

The lockdown meant people spent more time indoors and a dash for larger homes and gardens pushed up prices in September, a survey by property website Rightmove showed last week.

That chimed with other surveys that have shown a post-lockdown surge in the market, also helped by a temporary cut in property tax.

Prices will rise 2.0% this year, the Sept. 15-25 poll of 22 property experts showed, but stagnate

Affordability Improving Nationally Despite Strong Nominal Price Appreciation, According to First American Real House Price Index

—Recent history has shown that in times of economic distress, lower mortgage rates have offset the affordability drag from faster house price appreciation and lower household income, says Chief Economist Mark Fleming—

First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading global provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions, today released the July 2020 First American Real House Price Index (RHPI). The RHPI measures the price changes of single-family properties throughout the U.S. adjusted for the impact of income and interest rate changes on consumer house-buying power over time at national, state and metropolitan area levels. Because the RHPI adjusts for house-buying power, it also serves as a measure of housing affordability.

Chief Economist Analysis: Falling Rates, Rising Income Offset Nominal House Price Appreciation in July

“Affordability improved in July as two of the three key drivers of the Real House Price Index (RHPI), household
