A housing market that works?

PricedOut: A housing market that works - the PricedOut Manifesto

PricedOut believes that ordinary working people should be able to afford to buy a good quality home wherever they are in the UK.
Our manifesto is a comprehensive package of measures that will address the root causes of today’s sky-high house prices and bring stability and affordability to the UK housing market.
We need:
A government target of zero house price inflation
A major housebuilding programme, focussed on areas that need new homes the most
An end to incentives which encourage speculation in house prices and put first-time buyers at a disadvantage in the market
Improved tenants’ rights to ensure private rented housing is an acceptable place to live

Their manifesto would oblige the government to fight against a HPC. They are very weasel like when confronted about this on twitter.

Hang on a minute. They want government to "aim to keep house prices stable" NOW? At the very top of the biggest housing bubble in British history?

Although somewhat raw and unpolished right now, slowly and steadily these views will seep into society as more and more people find themselves on the losing side in all of this. We've seen nearly a century of aspirational growth in home-ownership, which has kept the political will on the side of the home-owner; but for the first time (pretty much since the vote was given to non-landowners in the late 19th century) people are starting to give up hope of owning - which could swing the political will in a completely different direction.

When I first graduated, almost anyone in a professional career could buy something in the London area within a couple of years. Some opted for places to do up, others went for flats and we all went out drinking at the weekends and had a social life. I would never have dreamed of the day when young city bankers would be shelling out over half a million for ex local authority houses. I agree with Bm @2.

"Intervention on this side JUST AS BAD as the other".

Is it really? So we should just leave things as they are; the spoils of fiat fraud to the kleptocrats, and financial repression for the rest of us?

The market is beyond manipulated. It is definitely not free. Which is why emergency measures have been in place for 6+ years. It is playing Privatise the Profit and Socialise the Losses.

AKA Communism for the rich.

Markets should be free to decide, agreed, but those who turn the levers of such 'free' markets will always do so primarily in their own interests.

There is no doubt that economies are heavily rigged in favour of the powerful, not just in housing and assets but control of society in general. The TV programme last night on Aaron Swartz demonstrates that if it need any demonstration.

HAHAHAHA HPC is now deleting posts if someone calls someone else blind as the other has deliberately missed what was written.

Too funny and pathetic. Seriously considering my continued involvement with HPC due to this action

Would FUBRA care to comment on your reasoning behind your action re post #9?
