    In some ways it is ironic that the developed world pours constant scorn on China’s “control” of the property market. If you look at the UK, social housing has been sold off in recent times and new build numbers are tens of thousands of units short per annum. The UK is in excess of 100,000 units behind demand for new property yet the government continues to starve the market. Is this not also a form of control to keep prices relatively high?
