All I want for Christmas…by Erwin Rode
2015 has been a busy year for everyone. We at HomeTimes want to know what industry heavyweights are thinking about as the year draws to a close. Some are concerned about buyers, others sellers, and still others society in general. But what is it that they would like to see in their Christmas stocking for a better 2016?
Welcome to All I want for Christmas according to:
Erwin Rode, CEO of Rode & Associates Property Consultants
“My Christmas wish list starts with the economy. One would hope government would start curbing its running expenses; it shouldn’t cave into union pressure so we can stave off a further down-rating by ratings agencies. The past salary increases government gave civil servants was unaffordable despite knowing this. There will be serious consequences as a result. My wish is that there are no more increases in the salary bill over the next few years as we as a country are living beyond our means. My other wish is that affirmative action is moderated. It is a structural problem and needs to be replaced by appointment on merit.”
