Homes As Economic Infrastructure

Recommended Posts

The following blog post made some such powerful points, it got me thinking why no-one else has written about this obvious topic before. It is high time we weaned ourselves off treating property as a speculative asset and joined our more sensible continental counterparts in treating is as vital infrastructure for its residents.

A home can only be a speculative asset if INVESTORS get in on them.

Banks are the investors...homeowners MAY benefit in the rise of the ponzi, but those that hang in will fail with its collapse. Billions of ££££s worth of clever financial ponzi instruments are based on the scam...they have failed.

otherwise, a house produces nothing. It has a utility value, but it COSTS to have it.
