The Invisible Land: The Hidden Force Driving The Uk'S Unequal Economy 
And Broken Housing Market



reform of the dysfunctional land market is essential if the UK is to 
be a more equal, more productive and stable economy. It is also vital 
to creating a better-functioning housing market that delivers the 
affordable and quality homes the country needs.

Land is an essential factor in all economic activity but, if it is 
not properly managed and regulated, it can play a destabilising role 
in the housing market and the wider economy. The UK's dysfunctional 
land market and soaring land values have helped drive growing wealth 
inequality, create the conditions for a broken housing market, and 
are a root cause of an unproductive and unstable economy. Reform of 
the land market must therefore be focused on reducing the financial 
speculation that occurs in land and sharing the benefits of increases 
in land values for the benefit of the public good.

This conclusion is based on five key propositions.
    * The broken land market has a key role in driving wealth 
inequality in the UK.
    * The broken land market is the driving force behind our broken 
housing market.
    * The broken land market has played a key role in the 
financialisation of the UK economy and is a cause of the UK's poor 
    * The broken land market and high house prices are feeding 
macroeconomic instability.
    * The UK's systems for regulating and taxing land do not seek to 
target or fail to adequately capture the 'economic rents' that arise 
from land.

'From South America, where payment must be made with subtlety, the 
Bormann organization has made a substantial contribution. It has 
drawn many of the brightest Jewish businessmen into a participatory 
role in the development of many of its corporations, and many of 
these Jews share their prosperity most generously with Israel. If 
their proposals are sound, they are even provided with a specially 
dispensed venture capital fund. I spoke with one Jewish businessmen 
in Hartford, Connecticut. He had arrived there quite unknown several 
years before our conversation, but with Bormann money as his 
leverage. Today he is more than a millionaire, a quiet leader in the 
community with a certain share of his profits earmarked as always for 
his venture capital benefactors. This has taken place in many other 
instances across America and demonstrates how Bormann's people 
operate in the contemporary commercial world, in contrast to the 
fanciful nonsense with which Nazis are described in so much "literature."

So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish participation in Bormann 
companies that when Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv 
to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the Jewish and German 
communities of Buenos Aires. Jewish leaders informed the Israeli 
authorities in no uncertain terms that this must never happen again 
because a repetition would permanently rupture relations with the 
Germans of Latin America, as well as with the Bormann organization, 
and cut off the flow of Jewish money to Israel. It never happened 
again, and the pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of 
these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an Argentinian safe haven, 
protected by the most efficient German infrastructure in history as 
well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.'
