Magnificent Mandy’s passionate denunciation of real estate profiteering at the expense of a diverse community, and feeding on the magic pudding of perpetual growth, had me humming a medley of ‘Allons enfants… and Kumbaya’. But the blue-sky-dreaming solutions – ‘We need fixed rents. Fixed values.’ – had me asking, ‘how?’
Of the 40 pages of The Echo (3 February), we had eleven pages devoted to real estate. Some of the juicier properties feature half-page ads. And that’s part of the ‘magic happens’ of this place. You can bite the hand and enjoy a slice of magic pudding all at the same time!
