    US is heading in the same direction with Trump trying to sell off land to rich investors and rent becoming more and more unaffordable. Only the money from investors go straight into their own pockets while taxes keep getting raised on the middle class.

    I think Johnny meant to say interests of the GOVERNMENT, not the market. The market would GLADLY develop on free land in Hong Kong, based on the prices they are bidding for open parcels. It is GOVERNMENT policy that is creating the housing crisis, not capitalism. Just like in San Francisco and New York, GOVERNMENT policy drives housing prices up. Notice a pattern?

    That's insane. A free market is a good thing, but it can't come at the expense of the people. In my opinion, the government has a responsibility to provide means so people have somewhere to live. And by somewhere to live, I mean in real apartments/houses, and not some cages.

    The older I get the more I realize people who are willing to pay ridiculous amounts to live in a popular city deserve their struggles. I’ve had money, I’ve been broke, I’ve been homeless, I’ve lived in houses, apartments, cities and the countryside. Been from coast to coast, top to bottom, and I don’t see a single logical reason someone would be willing to pay so much money to live in a big city. For example, San Francisco, California or LA. A small apartment can go for 2-3k easy. A lot of times, people cram 4 or 5 roommates in it. It’s insane. I bought a house on 2 acres in Missouri, lakefront, in a 12,000 acre gated community with four wheeler trails, swimming pools, parks, fishing, hills, valleys, even a small grocery store and gas pumps. Less than an hour from a big city in any direction. $76,000. You know what $76,000 gets you in LA? A small apartment for a couple years. No logical reason to stay in these cities.

    it is the people who need to change WHY people think "I MUST live in Hong Kong"? why is it a MUST? people need to open up their mind, instead of asking the gov to open up land open up your mind about where you can live the world is big enough for you to find happiness and live comfortably but if you insist on staying in HK and competing for housing with the world's richest people, then of course, you'll find yourself losing and living in a nightmare go anywhere else, you'll find yourself in a very good shape! again, people, open up your mind, there are tons of good places on earth for you to enjoy a reasonable life (I'm talking about a "reasonable" life here)

    If I were playing within the weird rule set that Hong Kong has put itself within, I would put a clause on those leases that states some requirements for certain properties. A lot of those towers are quite inefficient. They're pretty, lavish, but they don't maximize land use. Obviously you don't want to encourage going back to the awful designs of the 90s, but forcing developers into hundred story, maximized land use developments would go a long way.

    This was great. I couldn’t help noticing Sydney was second on that list. If you do another episode, I’d love to know why Australia’s prices are so high when there is an absolute abundance of land and lots of tax’s aswell? I’m from Perth - the world most isolated city, and yet we pay so much for land and lots on taxes aswell. I’ve always wondered why when there is empty useable space everywhere.

    This will be hard for some of you to understand and take but it’s a proven fact that raising taxes doesn’t magically make people’s lives better! If you think real-estate will somehow become cheaper due to the government raising taxes you are wrong. Either due to really not knowing any better and being fooled by people and videos like this or you’re one of the phony’s pushing a failed ideology. Take a look at the big cites around the world and look at those with high tax rates and you’ll see a steady rise in cost of living.

    "...put the interest of people above the interest of market [excessive riches]." Poor people includes many between middle class and some middle class. Poor people are the majority. If the filthy rich were actually smart, intellectuals, they would realize, after putting all the obvious pieces together, that the poor will soon not be able to take it. They wont tolerate it anymore and they will protest, violently. This will happen worldwide because this greed happens everywhere. The poor are being forced out from their once-called home areas. They are being shoved away. They are being bullied. What happens when people are pushed too much or too hard? They fight back. Regardless if you disagree with this and don't like the opinion, the chaos is coming. And that is it. The rich and the greedy and selfish don't care. Wont care. Until its too late. The chaos is coming and then they will try to be considerate, thoughtful of the less fortunate, but it will be too late. The riches they have built will be burnt away to ashes. Many will die: can you actually not see it coming? Take a look around the world, much information, which humanity couldn't see for themselves before the internet and its explosion, is right here on BRreporter and other websites. The world is going to tremble, all because the rich and the powerful were too selfish and too arrogant. Those who THINK they are safe in their castles, will find out such homes were built on sand. Security will fail. The only real protection will come to those who are True Christians.
