When houses are the size of parking spaces. Follow Johnny on Instagram: 🤍🤍instagram.com/johnny.harris/ Follow the Vox Borders watch page: 🤍🤍facebook.com/VoxBorders/ Sign up for the Borders newsletter: 🤍🤍vox.com/borders-email With original music by Tom Fox: 🤍m.soundcloud.com/user-416166523 Hong Kong is the most expensive housing market in the world. It has been ranked as the least affordable housing market on Earth for eight years in a row, and the price per square foot seems to be only going up. The inflated prices are forcing Hongkongers to squeeze into unconventionally small spaces that can affect their quality of life. Tens of thousands of Hongkongers are living in spaces that range from 75 to 140 square feet. To put that in perspective, the average parking space in the US is about 150 square feet. And in the most extreme cases, Hongkongers have resorted to homes the size of a coffin. I spent some time exploring the living situation in Hong Kong to find out why housing has become so expensive and spaces so tight. To understand how Hong Kong’s housing market turned out this way and see how it’s affecting people’s lives, watch the final episode of Borders Hong Kong.

The architects who design these apartments are criminals.

Been in such a miserable state for so long, brother built dystopian pods with ventilation and thought "wow it's a totally normal human living space but luxurious!"

These feel like college dorms. My dorm at school has about 100 square feet, including my roommates side. That means each of us gets about 50 square feet of living space divided between us. Working class people shouldn’t have to live in cages or college dorms. This is so incredibly frustrating, and these people do not get their voices heard in the government. We must continue to raise awareness about this.

I wonder if I can just make a tunnel for a living space on the mountains.

Perhaps a more fundamental solution for this problem is the decentralisation of economic opportunity. You don't need to live in the centre of a city if you can earn a living anywhere there is internet. Great video.

Under a system where profit is more important than life we can't achieve happiness for all

So the government owns all the land and yet instead of that being the obvious main issue here to you you focus on the fact that taxes are low? It's almost like when the government owns all of the land they don't have to worry at all about being competitive and just keeping jacking up the prices sky high.

the capsule is epic, the housing is really unfortunate for most of the people though, hopefully the government fixes this

It’s absolutely disgraceful to treat human beings this way caged like animals I’d like the landlords to spend at least a year in one only then would they understand.
