The government’s focus on affordability through supply has been likened to putting out a bushfire with a garden hose

    Why do the so-called-experts always have no idea about how the industry works, that they comment on.
    Maybe some of them should move out of Sydney, and see the rest of the country.

    This classroom expert has no idea. Even the Grattan Institute (a labor policies think tank) says removibg Neg Gearing will only decrease house prices by 1-2%. The AFR just wrote an article on 11 ways to improve affordability. Neg Gearing was a very minor one. More supply built at a fixed price without the developer mark ups. This so called expert has been watching too much Project and not enough Property Couch.

    It's just a Sydney problem so instead applying new rules on an Australia wide basis why not just jack up land tax in NSW. Problem solved and more taxes for the State Government.
