Explanations Of The Social Benefit Of High Shelter Costs

Recommended Posts

I see no societal benefit to having high shelter costs.

1. High and increasing prices are the CARROT.

2. High and increasing debt is the STICK.

I did a thread on this last year some time, and this was my conclusion.

Very beneficial to an enlightened co-operative society.

People can't afford to get divorced and buy 2 new separate houses, so more people stay in unhappy marriages for financial reasons and the divorce rate goes down. (I personally don't find this a social good, but lots of people seem to, so if one were a certain type of social reactionary/conservative one might find this a social good :huh: )

Lazy people are forced to work for the "greater good".

If only.

The system works like this:

If you don't work and can't afford something it will be bought for you by the people who do work and can't afford it.

OK I'll update.

Lazy but easily scared people work for those who are also lazy but not so easily scared.

This second group consists of politicians, fat cats and all of the other people who'd rather not or unable to work for a living (and are capable of persuading the rest of us to work on their behalf). They are the "greater good".

It keeps the proles under the gun, too busy working to think about politics, civil liberties, justice etc. Think Stakhanov.
