"Reply from Fredrik Kopsch on the housing market."
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"REPLICA. With a lack of analysis and a picture of a problem they themselves do not seem to understand, hangs Listerborn and Pelling to the platitudes: ”Build housing that people can afford to live in”. Slogans one might expect from policy, not from the professors. "
"Here are three suggestions for the functioning of the housing market of all: the reinstatement of the property tax, abolishing rent control and extend aid to those who need help."
"the Authors write that the elimination of the estate tax benefited those who can afford to buy property. It is wrong. The reform favoured only those who at the time owned their homes. "
"Those who bought after the reform, have made it to the higher rate where the elimination of the property tax was capitalised. A återinförd fastighetskatt would operate negatively on the price level, to give incentives to adapt the accommodation according to needs, and facilitate more people to buy property."
"rent control with distribution queue (an expected phenomenon by the price regulation) is regressive. Those with high incomes have more opportunities to wait. Also, discrimination is here to wait. "
"On a prisreglerad market can landlords select a tenant. That they choose to discriminate according to income, a legal ground, is expected. "
"Of free price formation occurs a natural vacancy, and tenants can choose between the property owners. "
"the Elimination of the price control has other positive effects, queue and the black is eliminated, and incentives for remodeling and ”standardhöjande” the renovations will disappear. It can, however, result in a distribution that society considers unjust."
"It should be obvious that the ”general” housing policy failed to help the society weak. To build ”homes people can afford to live in” without requiring that these will right people for the part, does not work. "
"the Market can handle a lot, but will most likely not reallocate resources in a way that society perceives as fair. The distribution must be left to the public. "
"To more low-income people live in attractive areas can publicly subsidized and income-based housing, or housing help. To subsidise housing with low rents do not guarantee that those with low incomes to get them, instead we run the risk of subsidizing households that are able to manage themselves. Overall subsidies are too blunt to help the society weak."
"To help society the weak must be allowed to cost, but it costs less to help directly, than to subsidize randomly and hope for the best. In case of the latter you need to also turn a blind eye to it so far never has worked."
