We could subsidise investment in other areas like shares to boost the economy - yet we don't.
My opinion is that if you have the means to invest you don't need a subsidy to counter act losses made in real estate.
Unless those losses help the community because you are investing in new dwellings in an area where more stock is needed.
Then it's a win win for all involved.
The way negative gearing works now is counterproductive IMO.

I'm feeling so thankful living in the country now reading all this. No wonder couples are working themselves to death just to pay the mortgage

she has also spent craploads on store credit cards decorating the place because of course she can't live in anything less than a show home.
she's just found out she's lost her job so the stress on them must be enormous.
I don't know why people assume such silly levels of risk. why not just buy something affordable and that you've saved up for and enjoy it stress free. yes it mightn't be your forever house but it's a foot on the ladder and you can build from there.

I don't have an issue with the cgt discount, I think it's a good way to encourage investment across the board as everyone is able to access it. so a student who sells a parcel of shares for $5k which they bought for $3k would be able to reduce the cgt from $2k to $1k. what's wrong with that? not like you have to be mega rich to access this concession?
neg gearing I believe should be capped at 1 investment property, on a first in first served basis (so it's the first place you bought, you can't pick and choose which property you apply it to otherwise that would be unfair). after that, all investment properties must be positively geared. it shouldn't be allowed to apply retrospectively either, I think it should apply to new purchases only from a certain date.
