ON the Big Ideas programme, another discussion about HOUSING … held in Brisbane 26 June 2019 (after the Federal Election).
Largely about the …
-role of government
-public v private
AND the real inequality is now in the ‘after housing costs’ according to Grattan Institute’s John Daley …
WHILST we did not hear all of the programme … we did not pick up any mention of the impact of ‘foreign buyers’ … did we miss this?
Somehow we doubt it … on our experience to date …
-why are foreign buyers not mentioned?
-is there something stopping foreign buyers and their impact being discussed?
WHY do we seem to relish in the TITLE DEEDS to Australia’s domestic housing being exported overseas?
-is self-censorship prevailing?
-are foreign buyers a taboo subject?
-why isn’t the absence of Anti-Money Laundering Legislation, and it’s role in real estate not discussed?
