    The numbers argument against Twyford as stated here is specious – if 125000 people of one ethnicity were buying four times as much property per capita as all others that is still anomalous. There’s a reasonably large effect size, exploring what and why is perfectly proper.

      just as specious as Twyford’s, the crucial difference being one is a political and one is a comedian

    I hope TRP watches this, if so, do you still think “More than 4000 sales in a 3 month period, scientifically analysed. You may not like the results, Bob, but the maths stands up” http://thestandard.org.nz/parnell-ponzi-when-are-national-going-to-act-on-housing/#comment-1044382, or do you now realise that it was all just a racist dog-whistle based on anecdotal evidence?

    • Watched it, liked it, and the maths still stands up, Bob.

      *sigh* Bob gets confused by satire into considering it to be maths.

      • Must have thought it was some kind of tutorial. C-

          Funny as it was do you agree that the issue isn’t just Chinese money coming in but all speculative property investment?

          I mean I know it is a much harder political pill to swallow that all property should be properly taxed but really wouldn’t it be more honest and address the issue far better?

    Chinese already buy almost a quarter of new homes in Sydney and their outlay will more than double to $60 billion in the six years to 2020, according to Credit Suisse Group.

    Why would it be any different in Auckland?

    Now that was funny.

    No wonder the right wing in this country are so bitter – it’s so damn easy to laugh at them.

    This satire is probably a better analysis than we get from MSM most days. Its so bad it is funny.
    Housing bubble? What housing bubble? Seen the keys to the Merc….

    So how far away from doomsday when the bubble bursts a sweepstake anyone.
    For people to make money they have sell before the bubble bursts.
    Then all hell will break loose .

    Latest Key movie to go with his Rockstar economy
    Yes its that old favorite updated
    You guessed it “Death and Taxes/ Bubble Bubble toil and trouble”
    The masses die and the rich pay less tax than ever before so that the 1% ers dont have to put up with more people claiming a seat on the good ship “Safety Im Rich” as the world’s self destructing
    This was John’s real deal with Warners the fore runner to the TPPA
