    It's not a matter of comparing it to other markets. Tell me, how would you feel about the seabed and foreshore being privately owned? No wait, is it realistic, to live without having to own rent or lease land?

    "The housing market" I might just go out there and trademark that dumb arse phrase, and make y'all stop using it. It's to fucking abstracted from reality.

    You see the problem is not the fact Chinese are buying houses —-that can be easily stopped like a snap of the fingers.

    Go on then, If it's that easy, make it stop.

    10) Will this be forgotten by next weekend?

    Did you notice how quickly the story about violence in prisons changed? The cell phones are now the problem, not the post traumatic stress disordered people who will soon be living in a slum near you. Unless you live in a ‘good’ street.

    But Maori and PIs? They’re screwed, and getting more screwed every day.

    Mainly those that don’t have a stake in any land, to call home.

    My wife’s family name is Tang, I will give you a free car if you can tell me her ethnicity, not simply the country her name originated from, but her actual ethnicity, I’ll give you one guess.

    Japanese car?

    At which point I agree with them. Distributing property and the right to live in it “fairly” is a vital part of the entire makeup of the economy and political system. It can and always should have been done much more fairly. We still can actually change it, to make the dream less of a fantasy and more of a reality for all the people who fall under the umbrella of wanting to keep living in this country and caring how it ends up. They don’t have to just accept that the winds of international capitalism will blow it where they will without any of their say so at all.

    We'll and truly. It's still unclear if the Labour Party wants that. Especially since they abandoned the capital gains tax policy.

    So, I wonder how the algorithms dealt with investment company’s, that buy multiple property’s in Auckland. Where they included in the Chinese names verse all other ethnicity percentages?
