    I wasn't aware of the stock transaction tax :)

    The land lease part I had known about, but the way an old colleague had explained it to me was "basically private ownership".

    But i always thought it was just because it was such a small land mass that it was a practical way to avoid cornering of the market.

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
