How? The social responsibility of providing housing at some notional "fair" rent should not fall on the individual. If you were selling your car and a rich young man offered you €10,000 and an older, poorer, father of 4 kids who really needed a car to keep his job offered you €6,000 would you sell it to the father of four or the €10k man? Would you think that the social burden of providing for the children of that poorer father should fall on you or the State?Completely different scenario.
How about keeping property taxes and maybe increasing them and using the money to build more houses? It will also act to reduce house prices so it's a win-win for those trying to buy their own place. Broaden the tax base, tax wealth rather than income, shift away from taxing work and generally stop screwing over young people. The Shinners populist proposals will only hurt young people.What is the solution?
