    If only we'd thought of this earlier!

    Even more genius: I thought of this three years before this article was published.

    When I first bought, many people said that property sucked, and why would I be looking at doing this? As you can tell I rue that decision every day.

    why not just reduce property tax so wealthy chinese investors buy up all our property as cheap "bullion in the sky" and inflate prices into a bubble, thereby making it impossible for anyone to also buy a house. Owait, that's what already happened.

    Would prefer to buy some R&D if I wanted to invest

    Apparently I shouldn't, according to capitalism. Everybody loses, yay!
