New York Times, 2024-4-4:  The government had also helped reinforce private apartment buildings over the past six years by adding new steel braces and increasing column and beam sizes, some of the older buildings that had been retrofitted in this way survived Hualien's quake Taipei 101, once the tallest building in the world, still, some experts say that more needs to be done to either strengthen or demolish structures that don't meet standards, and such calls have grown louder in the wake of the magnitude-7.4 earthquake.   nytimes.com/2024/04/04/world/asia/taiwan-hualien-earthquake-prepared.html

CNN, 2024-4-1: Taiwan shaken but unbowed as biggest quake in 25 yearsWhen the earthquake struck in 1999, Taiwan was very unprepared, citing corruption in the construction industry, the lack of building regulations, and inadequate coordination in rescue efforts.  What we've seen since then are massive upgrades across the board, from the top down, the government strengthened disaster management laws, improved coordination for rescue and relief, and enforced stricter building codes for earthquake resistance.


WSWS.org, 2024-4-6: Japan Timessays some developers were still cutting corners. “The focus when it comes to development is still the lowest price, so in that case you can't have the best quality”.   The areas of Taiwan's Hualien city worst affected are most likely to have been in poorer areas where older buildings have not been strengthened and newer shoddy ones have been constructed by developers cutting corners. An earthquake in one area of the island has the potential to destabilise faults in other parts. One area of particular concern was Chiayi County in southern Taiwan, where the Meishan Fault is nearing its once-in-a-century activity cycle

Financial Times, 2024-3-11:  one of the main headaches for Taiwan is a boom in high-end housing. Executives heading back from mainland China have pushed up prices.

Bloomberg, 2024-1-11: The government has estimated 2023 growth would be the slowest since the 2009 global financial crisis. It costs 16 years of annual income to afford a home in Taipei — one of the highest such ratios globally.    uk.news.yahoo.com/taiwan-voters-head-polls-ties-220000046.html

CSIS.org, 2024-1-19: Yet recent volatility and some chronic problems—housing costs chief among them—made the economy's performance a central issue in the elections...  A key concern for voters is the cost of living. Though some blame high interest rates, the cost of housing in Taiwan’s main cities is high by international comparison. Inequality in Taiwan is still low compared to elsewhere, but it has crept up the last decade. csis.org/analysis/taiwans-2024-elections-results-and-implications   Brian HartScott Kennedy Jude Blanchette and Bonny Lin

China Times (中國時報), 2024-4-7: "housing safety" is more important than "the right of adequate and affordable housing"  Taiwan has 9.04 million houses with average age 32,  51% houses are aged  over 30 years.  The average age of Taipei houses is 36.8 72% of Taipei's houses are aged over 30 years 14% of them are aged over 50 years.   chinatimes.com/opinion/20240407002867-262101?chdtv

United Daily (聯合報) , 2024-4-8:   Some red-ticket and yellow ticket houses being reinforced were still deemed impossible to save.   There are so many old houses crowded together in Taipei have bad seismic resistance.  Taipei got serious soil liquefaction issue,  besides, the basins and flatlands in YiLan, Taipei and Hualien, are basically "a big bowl of loose sediment" that can amplify movement


New York Times, new briefing, 2023-12-5: many voters, especially those in their 20s and 30s, say they are weary of geopolitics and yearn for a campaign more focused on their concerns, like rising housing costs, slow income growth and narrowing career prospects.  Whom young people ultimately vote for — and how many vote at all — could be a crucial factor in deciding the presidential election.

L.A. Times, 2024-4-4:  Some Taiwan's residents voiced concerns about the earthquake alert system because not everyone was notified.

United Daily (Taiwan), 2024-5-17: The surge in the stock market and real estate market has mainly benefited the rich and capitalists. The Tsai administration has never carried out meaningful financial or fiscal and tax reforms. It only makes the rich "get richer and richer" while the disadvantaged classes are increasingly trapped in an environment of deprivation. A recently released survey of household income in Taiwan shows that the gap between the top and bottom 20% is as high as 66.9 times, which is a serious deterioration compared to 16.8 times 30 years ago.

Unmonitored speculation, low housing supply, and a long tradition of homeownership pushed house prices in Taiwan, particularly in the capital city, and particularly on high-end properties.   buying a home remains unaffordable for most young Taiwanese, a situation we don’t expect to change in the medium term,” said Emily Dabbs of Moody’s Analytics. An average household in Taipei needs to pay two-thirds of income for a mortgage loan, far above the affordable limit of 30%.
Taipei now vies with Monaco for the lowest yields in the world. Taipei is not a happy place to be a landlord. Currently, average rental yields in Taiwan hover around 1.5%.  Paradoxically Taiwan has one of the highest home ownership rates in the world at 87%, while social housing accounts for about 5% of households. And the trend towards home ownership is increasing. Because of this, Taiwan's rental market is quite small, around 8% of around nine million households.
