Home Ownership & Finance Reform

One of the many absurd and clearly false arguments promoted across the world is that property needs to be an investment and speculative market in order to attract sufficient capital to build new houses and buildings. In truth, the best designed cities have been by inspired leaders and governments; and the most loving homes have always been built locally not for profit. The property market casino will bankrupt many countries through the new great depression. They must take heed and end foreign investment in their domestic housing supply; and end government policies that create incentives for speculative property investment. Only then will housing return to being about quality home ownership and not gambling.
