Re: Thoughts From My 1st Visit to China (Fuzhou)

Military? I don't think the usa is shaking in their boots at the thought of conflict with China.

Economic? Sounds like nothing but bad news out of China lately. And again - if it is so good, why the capital flight? Doesnt sound optimistic to me.

Westerners in Asia? Maybe you don't know what "many" means.

Face it - the Chinese envy Canada (and the west). Not the other way around.
neither side is that crazy at the moment. besides, there's co-dependence for sure. lots of growing up to do. especially the average ignoramus population here in backwater town.

the locals and natives here had it good here for so long, maybe didn't realize the value and just receded into the complacency of it.

I think this is the painfully obvious reality.
This. Absolutely.
Completely stupid argument.

Locals pay what they can afford based on incomes. Has zero to do with complacancy.

*shaking my head in disbelief at the stupid things people believe*
not true, desirable places are not based on local incomes. like all the other desirable international cities. reason why vancouver is ranked top 3 every year.

one thing is certain, wages do not go up fast. so the people spent their money on things other than housing such as having a good time, convenience, eating out and entertainment. alcohol or clothing or any other number of things instead of buying a house. they were complacent with that not thinking about any threat of eventual housing cost increase. they did not recognize what they had here until now it's almost gone. Everyone started to take land like taking water from a pond til there's no water left.

I didn't say that desirable places are based on income. But when you said locals got complacent, what are locals to do? They can only afford what they can afford. The only way locals got complacent was not putting in laws that maximize their benefit from foreign ownership (high taxes, restrictions on purchases, etc)

Are you saying locals should stop living life to own a home? Every nickel one earns goes into the house while they eat KD?

Give me a break.

so long as people rich people continue buying - yes.

When they stop buying... guess what, only incomes/salaries can prop up the market.

Up to now they haven't stopped buying. but tomorrow is another day.

the government here doesn't care about your average joe worker or poor people. they care more about revenue to pay their paycheques and expenses.

and it's not so much locals vs. foreigners.

it's more about the rich and powerfule stomping all over the poor like they do worldwide. but that likely wont change. not much profit in charity.

Yeah, I give you a break .... by telling you a horrible truth that locals still own majority of homes in Vancouver, and that reality makes me happy when I drive through the neighborhood , "wow, they are all millionaires now even the one who owns that ugly bungalow".

Sorry not you, you have to keep each nickel for rent, ....is there always one day called "1st" in each and every month in Vancouver? really real? :lol:

not me. the only thing people are legally supposed to do is pay taxes in my book - once they don't, I have zero issues if they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law - no matter what taxes they are or aren't paying. :lol:

taxes they are or aren't paying. :lol:
More tax is paid on a house and Ferrari than your entire working life. Sorry relly you are running out of red herring straw man arguments.

Sensationalism at its best

You would make a great propaganda headline writer

What you are whining about is a non existent problem...sorry

When times were low you should buy. I'm no brain scientist even I knew the collapse meant opportunities in 2003 and 2009.

When I heard "best place on earth "and winter Olympic win

I'm sold
