House prices could be set for a slowdown

Where is Britain’s housing market heading from here?

However, the good news [sic] is that the longer-term picture is rosy given Britain’s long-standing shortage of properties.

    The article asks: WHAT SHOULD I DO?

    1. Campaign for loosening of planning restrictions (not just for new housing but for roads, ports, airports, factories, power stations, playgrounds etc).

    2. Demand that the banks repay the £300 billion taxpayer funded loans according to the agree schedule. Proper banking supervision. Limits on loan to income ratios for new lending.

    3. Scrap the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee.

    4. Ask for more social housing to be built and allocated sensibly.

    5. Optional: campaign to have as many taxes as possible (I will leave it up to your to decide which are the taxes which should be replaced first) replaced with Land Value Tax.

  • Wow, thats got to be one of the worst articles I have read in a long time.

    How is a housing shortage (albeit a mythical one) good news?

    I guess countries that have food and water shortages is also good news, because it means sellers of crops will make more money and can get more profit from clean water?
