17 Countries with Housing Bubbles

According to Nouriel Roubini, cheap credit is driving up prices in some smaller (and not so small) markets. These 17 countries may have housing bubbles. If they pop, God help us all.
Roubini sees housing prices getting out of whack in quite a few small and mid-sized nations that are well-governed and managed to avoid the worst economic effects of the financial crisis: Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the London metropolitan area in the U.K. He adds some key emerging markets that show the same dynamic: Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Israel, and major urban centers in Turkey, Indonesia, India and Brazil.
