Stamp Duty, is relief in sight?

An interesting speech by the Victorian premier today stated the government’s attempts to have a ‘relief package’ for the average 1st homebuyer was succeeding…
I think that all they are succeeding 1st home buyers to do is to keep pushing the boundaries of Melbourne by building in cheap area’s which have very little public infrastructure or transport. The way our cities need to grow is internally by making our city more compact rather than keep bulldozing land which does nothing for the environment and makes our people so reliant on cars.

Which would we prefer to be like, LA or New York?
