Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

this is getting off topic. the original intent of the article is not about a 15% foreign buyers tax.  the whole original article was to point out that hardworking successful technicians, scientists and businessmen, people (ie. Chinese or of Chinese/Asian heritage) are being targeted as scapegoats t...

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers

There are lots of countries in the world that don't allow any foreign ownership of land / property. There are also lots of countries that tax the hell out of foreigners for buying property in their country.

Re: The dragon in the room: Hostility toward rich, Chinese newcomers
