In Venezuela, Sell Your House or Lose It  – Bloomberg View

Venezuela’s government has some odd ideas about how to stimulate the nation’s housing market.

Consider a new law that forces homeowners to sell their rental units to tenants. As of Monday, anyone who owns three or more properties and has rented a unit for more than 20 years, must sell it at a “fair price” to be determined by the state. Landlords who fail to do so face fines and could lose their homes.

I can’t imagine anything that could possibly go wrong with this amazing idea.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
