"anyone who gets in the Stockholm queue now may have to wait for 100 years"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"In Sweden says 243 of 290 municipalities have a housing shortage. The worst is that in the big cities and Stockholm have a chronic problem. 636 000 in the queue, is certainly a figure that should be taken with a pinch of salt, it is not a good halvmiljon the homeless, or even actively searching. "
"But as Johan Hellekant in the Swedish newspaper svenska Dagbladet writes (14 January): ”The person who is now at the end of the year stood at the very end of the Stockholm rekordkö can theoretically have to wait for their tenancy in 100 years.”"
"A newly-built third on Södermalm costs 17 000 dollars a month, really attractive, large apartments require over 30 years in the queue."
"the Housing policy does not lead forward. Or rather: there is no housing policy. "
"on the occasion of a newly released report, Wienmodellen – inspiration for a new social housing policy, by Lisa Pelling at the Arena, was discussed on the ABF yesterday, what we in Sweden could learn from Vienna. The seminar was packed, and hundreds of interested had been without a place says a lot about how the question involving."
"the Reason is the above situation. A roof over your head is a far too important issue to be left to the ”market” – it is, after all, a human right and a social housing policy is the basis for combating other problems, such as segregation."
"A new tenancy in Vienna cost a fraction of the one in Stockholm. And köandet rarely exceeds half a year. How it goes? The answer is a massive construction of housing, a large proportion of leaseholds, cooperatives, construction companies, subsidies, and some units require a hefty bet. The tenant is thus with the and reduces the economic risk by adding in a hefty sum. A bit like the property right before it became an investment."
"But the answer to the question of why Vienna, but not any american big city is spelled mainly culture. The actual desire to maintain and nurture a social housing policy, protect it from excessive fluctuations and, above all, hold it together so that all parts are working properly – it is the difference from the Swedish system. We had a system, but is now the worst in the class."
"It started with the fact that subsidies were removed in the 1990s, the construction came to a halt, public housing sold off and the rent was pushed up on the small built. Now we have built us in a system that requires the lack of housing to go around, in the same way that the labour market requires unemployment. The lack keeps us all in check."
"to this bostadshaveri should be able to be reversed requires political will and it is probably a bit here and there. I will leave the ABF with a slight touch of hope. The children may be able to get both a glass of beer and a place to live."
