TODAY's opinion piece: Your opinion?

The wife and I applaud the assumptions put forth by Mr Wong to debunk the common notion that most buyers of shoeboxes are investors. We wonder if the relevant authorities/experts (URA, CBRE Research etc) will care to respond.

Even if the government does outlaw direct absorption of extra stamp duty, there are many other ways/methods that property developers can "offset" such duty. And a rose by any other name is still a rose.... and smell just as sweet.
