Capitalism R4 programme - housing included too

Recommended Posts

could have done with more on how the UK housing market is distorted to benefit some groups at the expense of others and how it doesn't resemble anything like a free market.

I have not heard it but I think this

Quote

David Aaronovitch examines whether the free market is failing

Has got nothing to do with housing, it is not a free market. In a free market you are not forced via taxation to give others more than you can afford.

Blairite apologist and arch neoliberal David Aaronvitch has finally worked out that the free market doesn't work?

Ass clown.

People have more food under Capitalism than any other system.  Don't forget a system has to be compared to the alternatives as well as to an ideal world.

It was working for housing as well until the 1980s.

Are you a bot?  I didn't say that, I said before we don't have free market capitalism for housing and I was pointing out that we have enough food on this system.  BTW congratulations on using a full stop.

As we have less chance of starving to death under Capitalism it does work better than another system.  BTW what happened to the full stop?

I don't think the Tories are great and I have never said that Thatcher is wonder woman.  Like most (all) here I am glad that they did S24.  However help to buy, student fees, the poll tax were awful.  Dislike of Corbyn does not mean that I like the Tories.  As I said before, just because I don't want a bullet in my brain doesn't mean I like having a migraine.  (The Tories are a migraine, Corbyn a bullet).
