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!


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
