And Mexico compared to the US is a failure economically. I think we can concur on that.

Since we have foreigners buying up our homes, it simply MUST be we have the bigger GDP.

I live in Vancouver and see this first hand. Nothing against Asians, but when 50% of your real estate is being scooped up by "foreign investors," your alarm bells need to ring. Seems like 80% of realtors, buyers, builders in Vancouver are Chinese. Literally every new house in Vancouver has a 'wok kitchen,' and there are tons (30%?) of condos left unocuppied and blocks of multi-million dollar homes that are dark 8 months out of the year, no children playing on the streets, etc. They are merely vesels to park their wealth. With so many absentee owners, local businesses will suffer. This is all perfectly legal, but does nothing to better a city/neighbourhood in reality.

My only suggestion is foreign owners need to pay up the ying-yang in property taxes, esp if they don't meet certain living requirements, in order to prevent wealthy foreigners "parking their money" in our real estate markets.

There's only a 1% chance that Americans can afford all those mansions. Lol

No response from the Caucasian beater yet...perhaps we should check the police blotters and see if he or she has been arrested for aggravated assault.
