💡 Diff I think you can, but it's a little harder when it belongs to someone else that you have to answer to. It's not even just having to answer to someone, you have to go through them for a wide variety of things because it's not *yours*, and depending on the landlord that can range from inconvenient to downright painful.

🌋 Pod Unk In Canada real estate has drained investment capital from other, more productive (in terms of GDP growth) uses of capital. I argue that getting a mortgage and buying a house is a large _consumption_ of capital that doesn't contribute as much as it could to society.
