WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump hasn’t forgotten his old job — the world’s most-famous real estate developer says he wants the US to acquire the world’s biggest island, according to a report. Trump has expressed interest in the mostly ice-covered landmass located northeast of Canada, asking advisors if it is possible for the US to acquire Greenland, The Wall Street Journal said Thursday, citing people familiar with the discussions. The president has been curious about the territory’s natural resources and geopolitical relevance, the paper reported. Greenland is a self-governing region of Denmark, which colonized the 772,000 square-mile (two-million square kilometer) island in the 18th century, and is home to nearly 57,000 people, most of whom belong to the indigenous Inuit community. There was no official comment from the White House, and the Danish embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to AFP’s request for comment.

SINGAPORE (BLOOMBERG) - Japan's real estate firms are entering dangerous territory. That's the assessment of S&P Global Ratings, which said in a report on Friday (July 5) that the sector's debt levels now eclipse that of the nation's bubble era. Remember that? It was back in the 1980s, when newspaper headlines proclaimed that the grounds of the Tokyo Imperial Palace were valued at more than all of the real estate in California. "Japan's real estate market is peaking out and ready to head down," S&P said. "Although the conditions in the office leasing market are solid, there are signs of a slowdown in corporate earnings, particularly among manufacturers. In addition, we expect major upticks in central Tokyo office building supply in 2020 and 2023." Companies most at risk are Mitsubishi Estate Co, Mitsui Fudosan Co, Sumitomo Realty & Development Co and Nomura Real Estate Holdings Inc. Although interest rates in Japan have been low for years, domestic lenders have seen their … [Read more...] about Is it bubble time again for Japan’s real estate companies?
