English to Portuguese translations [PRO] Bus/Financial / Housing prices
English term or phrase:At best flat
In all three countries spending has been partly propped up by rising house
prices, which have offset the effect of a decline in equity wealth. Indeed,housing has a bigger impact on spending, because more people own homes
than own shares. It has also become easier to turn capital gains into cash by refinancing mortgages. In Germany and Japan, where house prices have been at best flat, consumer spending has been notably sluggish.
