Who Has Benefited Most From The Lotuslandian Real Estate Bubble?


It's a question that came up on the threads to a recent post.


Let's see.

Is it possible that that the main beneficiaries just might be the fine folks that have given the most to a particular provincial political party that did all it possibly could over the last fifteen years to inflate said bubble.

From a Douglas Todd VSun piece published in June of this year:

"...In the decade up to 2016, the B.C. Liberals took in $70 million in large corporate and business donations (while the NDP accepted $11 million from unions).

Roughly $12 million of the Liberals’ corporate donations came from the real estate industry, more than double the rate of contributions from the next biggest donor sectors, mining and forestry..."

What's that thing you are supposed to follow again when you are trying to figure out what is really going on?
