Australia has had decades of the
free-market mantras. Just encourage
the landlords and developers with
tax-incentives, grants, special deals,

hand of the "market" will make housing
cheaper and better. Just don't interfere
with the magical process. Trust us!

theories are working a treat.
Australia the worst is yet to come!
Now go back to your TV and wait for the
"free-market" civil war.
