What if your house had all the stuff you needed, and no one could afford to take it?
That’s what would happen if the United States were to follow the example of Belgium and buy back its own houses, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The idea is that if Belgium doesn’t get rid of its house inventory in time, its neighbors will buy them.
And then the country’s economy would boom.
If Belgium was to do so, it would have to sell all of its homes in order to pay for the rebuilding of the country, which is currently in recession.
So, if the country could rebuild its homes, the rest of the world would be on board.
As long as people in the rest.
world can afford to live in homes with all their needs met, and it’s not the world as a whole that has to buy them, then the world will go along with this plan.
Belgium’s government is already planning a program to sell its homes as a way to make up for the shortfall, though it’s unclear if it will succeed.
And as the Wall St Journal reports, if that happens, it might actually increase demand for homes in the United Kingdom and France, which would be good for the economy.
