Moving baby boomers into retirement villages suggested as way to solve Auckland's housing crisis

lol, these socialist countries come up with creative ways to try to beat the free market

as far as I can tell, the problem is that they aren't building enough homes for working people and at the same time, they are building  "retirement villages" that no one wants
chances are there's an underlying cause here, either a government subsidy to build housing for seniors or zoning regulations that favor housing for seniors

Wouldn't an easier solution be to listen to the market and build more homes that people want and fewer homes that people don't want

I say, sounds like the place is getting worse. If such a thing is possible, what?
I learned two things at drama school. First, that I couldn't act; second, that it didn't matter.
