Domaining is very well placed in the current economy, leaving us all in a very good situation. In the *real* world, you have people who are earning pounds and seeing food and energy bills going up faster than their pay, due to inflation and exchange rates. We offset that by having some revenue in GBP, some in USD etc. Also, people want to invest their cash in assets, but property, the old favourite doesn't look so good at the moment. Domains on the other hand are extremely cheap to hold in comparison to other assets such as property, art, wine etc. Domain names also EARN money while you hold them. Don't see many bottles of wine doing that. (Art I'll give you, as you can rent works of art out) So, are we likely to see a hug bubble in domain prices after this current slow down? I still feel that the Ad Agencies with BIG budgets have yet to "get it" about domain names, let alone the old school pension companies etc. I mean can you imagine a pension company buying out some of the large US based domain holders? Just a constant income stream, with capital values increasing at the same time. I'm in this for the long game. Buy, park/develop/ignore, sell if an offer catches my eye, or wait until I retire. But if we start to see real bubble prices, and many more end-users interested, then we should all do very well indeed.
