  • A good ‘market force’ would be to give people access to housing provided at normal profit margins, i.e. council housing. If someone wants a fancy home they are welcome to pay 300% of the build cost, but an option to buy housing services at cost plus a modest 10% markup would resemble a proper market.

    • Everyone knows social housing typically is ugly as hell and low quality. Social housing like all economic activity should be done strictly privately and compensated and subsidised strictly by regular means testing.
