interesting article. the housing situation in israel really baffles me. it seems to be similar to ny in that there is too much international interest to accomodate the locals. not sure how they could get around that.

I think Israel doesn’t have any tax on foreign nationals purchasing apartments there to use as a non-primary residence and the US does. That might be a solution. The current calls for rent control are a terrible idea as NY could show them.

Instead of looking for a cheaper apartment or a better-paying job, Leef announced on her own Facebook page that she would pitch a tent on Rothschild Boulevard to protest the city’s high cost of housing.

I’m going start a group to protest the color of the sky. Why should it be blue? Wouldn’t purple be nicer?
