Future "affordable" Housing?

Recommended Posts

As time goes by, newbuild homes have become smaller and smaller. How long will it be before Londoners pay thousands to live like this?

How long will it be before Londoners pay thousands to live like this?

I'm sure many already do. Beds in Sheds, etc

Well this is what the New World Order is about, controlling the population size - maybe reduce it by 80%. This is for the greater good of humankind. Otherwise we'll all going to live like this:

If populations aren't controlled it will go through the natural cycle, and be uncomfortable during the latter stages of the cycle, and possibly damage the planet forever. (NOT MY WORDS)

HK: 250% hpi since 2005. For the win.

250%? The buyers who paid higher prices since 2005, thus pushing all house prices up, "just wanted a home".

They didn't know what they were doing, and misled by their parents and the media.

And those homes are their bases for employment and self-employment, including Dr.Bubb entrepreur types with multiple HK rental properties.

Can't have HPC else there would be riots on the street. Be careful what you wish for.

I watched the Hairy Bikers in Asia last night which was in Hong Kong.

They mentioned the ludicrous house prices and showed the government run housing that most people live in instead.

There were 3 generations sharing 2 tiny bedrooms with the elderly grandmother sleeping on a tiny pull out mattress in the same room as a 21 year old and 10 year old.

Hong Kong has a Land Value Tax too, or did. I guess just too many people in a confined space.

The next bit needs an open mind - it works best when open, like a

parachute.

------------------------------

Now imagine if you were living in those conditions. You could work harder and save harder but it will probably be a very steep curve to get out of that situation. You have only one pair of hands, and can only work so many hours of the day. Even the landlord is at a low income level it seems from that article, with his passive income streams. What if you were in the martrix, and you couldn't do anything physically to escape the situation?

I think the internet is one way out - think of the internet entrepreneurs ? Take a look at this guy KSI on youtube - he is famous,

(WARNING THERE IS SOME SWEARING)

And he has managed to get Shaun Wright-Philips and Ian Wright to appear on his channel. This is what people like - consider this "market research".

If you have young children - they maybe minecraft fans. There is a very popular channel called the Yogscast, where Lewis and Simon have got some famous people to appear like Jonathan Ross. The old media guard are afraid of Youtube which is leveling the playing field of the media industry. I don't need to beg Simon Cowell to give me the air time, nor does my brother be a contact as a producer at a major TV network.

There is nothing stopping people from trying something on the internet - at least it isn't partially banned yet.... China has a ban on Youtube.

Is this Sarah Bells solution to the bedroom tax? :lol:

I don't think you can seriously compare someone being asked to have a lodger or house share to living in a dog cage.

Oh maybe you can.

Sadly many people are serious. I think not having a spare room and living 3 to a room are not even close.

I agree with what you say, but at the end of the day you have to have 'talent.' I found the guy in your link very entertaining and subscribed, but everyone of him there are thousands of also rans.

I agree one must have some talent, but also a niche subject.

One could start a daily Vlog - "Life in the cage"!

Amazingly people will probably follow that kind of stuff.

Additionally life in prison hasn't been done - a new pioneer market!

It might be a quiet news week (well theres the Olympics and the floods/wind), but I thought this article is a rehash from about a year ago.

These videos were released nearly a year ago:

^one minute in - it's the same bloke in the DM article! Do you think the journalist went back to the same house, and to the same person in one year?!!! LOL
