Report Tax Multiple Home Owners in House prices and the economy Posted February 20, 2010 If this poor person doesn't expect to pay for the services that his property benefits from then why should anyone else pay for them? The location that he occupies represents a unique opportunity for taking advantage of the local environment, in the free market taking up such a position and then abusing it amounts to a "misallocation of capital" and finacial loss. Yet in the housing market this sort of activity is celebrated, if he wants to use it then do so, if not then make way for someone else that will. If certain people want to block others then at the very least the latter should receive some sort of compensation for the opportunity cost. Nice theory Chairman Dave, no doubt you would also rename Trafalger Square to Tiananmen Square and bring justice to the working classes just like the Chinese did for their working classes, as did the Russians, and just about every other socialist despot who lived a life of envy failing to realise that it was their own personal failings that deprived them of economic success.
