Nowadays house price is becoming increasingly important, as residents should take the house price into consideration when they plan to buy a house and policymakers should make regulations on real estate market based on house price. Therefore, the determinants of house price are becoming increasingly important. However, some misunderstandings still exist,such as the real relationship between house price and land price. The author will elaborate on the relationship mentioned above from the following two aspects.

From the aspect of microeconomics, due to some reasons like changing jobs to other cities or deciding to change the living environment, people may buy a new house to start their new lives. Some individuals like to take convenience and quality of environment into consideration, and they may prefer some more comfortable places that have a good public transport service or short distance to CBD (Central Business District). According to the study of the relationship between New York vacant land price and location by Atack (1998, pp.151-172), the author concludes that the distance from city hall and land price have an inverse relationship. Thus, if they want to choose a place that may provide many conveniences, they cannot probably afford the house because of the high price of land. Then they may be always likely to regard land price as a sole determinant as land and house have a strong relationship regardless of other factors. Therefore, a concept may be shaped in their minds that the higher land price is, the higher the house price may be.

Likewise, from the perspective of the macroeconomics, some governments may take some measures to lower land price in order to lower real estate price. For instance, the Chinese government released a document to change the land regulation in order to contain the increasingly high land prices as the real…...

Land Acquisition

...Draft for Discussion THE DRAFT NATIONAL LAND ACQUISITION AND REHABILITATION & RESETTLEMENT BILL, 2011 I. Foreword II. Overview of the Draft Bill III. Text of the Draft Bill Ministry of Rural Development Government of India July 27th 2011 I. FOREWORD Infrastructure across the country must expand rapidly. Industrialisation, especially based on manufacturing has also to accelerate. Urbanisation is inevitable. Land is an essential requirement for all these processes. Government also needs to acquire land for a variety of public purposes. In every case, land acquisition must take place in a manner that fully protects the interests of land-owners and also of those whose livelihoods depend on the land being acquired. Under our Constitution, land is a State subject but land acquisition is a Concurrent subject. So far, the basic law governing the land acquisition process has been the Land Acquisition Act, 1894. Although it has been amended from time to time, it is painfully evident that the basic law has become archaic. Land markets in India are imperfect. There is asymmetry of power (and information) between those wanting to acquire the land and those whose lands are being acquired. That is why there has to be a role for the government to put in place a transparent and flexible set of rules and regulations and to ensure its enforcement. Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation and Resettlement (R&R) need to be seen necessarily as two sides of the same coin. R&R must always, in......

Land Acquisition

...Bill for land gives true value The draft law on acquisition strikes a balance between development and justice for those who will be displaced in the process India is a rapidly industrialising economy and society with intense demands for better infrastructure from its people. The last 20 years have seen a great acceleration in this process, with India becoming one of the world’s fastest growing economies. However, for those whose lands were acquired for these purposes and the even more vulnerable people whose livelihoods depended on the lands acquired, a great human tragedy has unfolded. Independent estimates place the number of people displaced following development projects in India since independence at 60 million. This is the highest number of people uprooted for development projects in the world. Only a third of these people were resettled in a planned manner. Most of them were the asset-less rural poor, marginal farmers, poor fisherfolk and quarry workers. Around 60 per cent of the displaced belonged to the Adivasi and Dalit communities. Given that 90 per cent of our coal, more than 50 per cent of minerals and most prospective dam sites are in Adivasi regions, there is likely to be continuing contention over issues of land acquisition in these areas. Two sides of a coin We need to move decisively away from the colonial Land Acquisition Act 1894, which treats the Indian people as “subjects,” towards a vision of citizens, whose rights are guaranteed under the......

Price ceiling is actually set below the equilibrium price by lowering the price of the goods so that consumers can be able to afford the goods, then price floors which is set above the equilibrium price by increasing the price of some goods in order to protect the interest of some certain producers, and also to see the efficiency and inefficiency of both the price ceiling and price floors.

...power, and nowhere has this been more apparent than in the proliferation of Internet auction sites. Sellers are able to post goods for sale on sites such as eBay or eBid, with or without a reserve price, and buyers are able to place their bids from (theoretically) anywhere in the world. The price rises as more people bid, until there is only one buyer left, who then buys the product at the final bid price. Buyers can pay by credit card through an escrow company (that holds the funds until the goods are delivered) or can make arrangements directly with the seller for payment. In recent years the process has moved a step further with the advent of reverse auctions. Firms such as bring buyers together to bid for products. The philosophy is simple; rather than bidding against other purchasers, and forcing the price up, the reverse auction arranges for buyers to join together and force the price down. For example, a manufacturer may offer an LCD TV for £800. If, however, 100 people are prepared to place a single order, the price might drop to £600. If 200 people are prepared to buy, the price might drop to £500. The price paid to the supplier will be dictated by the number of buyers, so begins by negotiating a series of steps at which the price will fall. The prices are posted on the website for a set period, but once the product is sold out it will not be available to later bidders. If the number of people wishing to buy the product does not meet a......

The name given a series is that of the most prominent areas. edition number- represents the age of the map in relation to other editions of the same map and the agency responsible for its production. Scale- note indicates the relative value of distance on the map compared to distance on the ground. A map with the scale of 1:50,000 means that 1 inch on the map equals 50,000 inches on the ground or 1,270 meters. Different map scales indicate different degrees of topographical detail.

Land Rover

... Land Rover Case Study Land Rover Land Rover North America had just witnessed success in the US market with the launch of their globally successful model The Land Rover Discovery. By the mid 80’s the already successful luxury car maker had experienced an onslaught from the Japanese car firms that were capturing the third world market due to a number of issues faced by the Rover Group. The Japanese firms had identified a gap in the market and were producing SUVs that communicated better with the leisure market which comprised not only of affluent childless adults that looked at these vehicles as a symbol of exclusivity but also the more traditional family sector that also wanted safety and comfort in their cars. Land Rover decided to address the issue by launching their Discovery model to recapture the lost market. Land Rover Discovery proved to be a success in UK. For the US launch of Land Rover Discovery, we need to look at the data given in the exhibits before deciding on positioning. According to the data given in Exhibit 8, the SUV intenders across the age, sex and marital status have similar requirements. They rate Quality, Safety and Performance over economics or status.

A Good Price for Good Land

...A Good Price for Good Land Webster Wallace American Intercontinental University U.S. History Abstract This paper will tell how the Louisiana Purchase came to be and how the U.S. acquired it. It will tell of the short and long-term consequences of acquiring this territory. It will tell of Thomas Jefferson and the political aspects of this purchase. This paper will discuss The Lewis and Clark expedition briefly and will have a summary of all the facts in its conclusion. A Good Price for Good Land The Louisiana Purchase is certainly one of the largest land deals in modern history, and also one of the best overall land deals one could ever hope for. As part of American history, it is the best thing that could have happened to a country who needed the space and who could not reject the price. Acquired in 1803 the United States paid $15 million dollars for well over 800,000 square miles of undiscovered land. That averages out to less than 5 cents per acre. At that price people would be lining up today to get as many acres as possible. For that matter, people still would be lined up to buy the whole thing even at today’s price of $283 million dollars. Could you imagine calling it The Oprah Purchase? The Louisiana Purchase was a very nice deal, and one the U.S. could not afford to pass up. The deal was arguably the greatest achievement of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency, but it also was a problem for him. Jefferson was anti-federalist and while he may have written or......

The population of a place increases in just a short time. However, the space in a place remains the same. When the houses in a neighbourhood are overcrowded, it shows that the population in the area is too big. This is a common sight in a city. Many poor people build shanties along creeks, in dumpsites or along railroads. More than one family may share a shanty. Overpopulation in a community can limit space for housing. And in this kind of scenario we will saw that overpopulation has a bigger factor not only in food and water but also in land space. Food shortage, overcrowding, poor water supply and environmental pollution affect the health of the people, particularly the children. Poor environmental sanitation is a major cause of diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid and cholera. Dirty insects such as flies and cockroaches contaminate food with disease-causing germs. Many children who play barefoot in dirty areas and do not wash their hands before eating become infected with worms. Some respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis, pneumonia and bronchitis are worsened by polluted air. Communicable diseases can easily be transferred from one person to another in an overpopulated area. This is the some salient features that cause of overpopulation that affect the economy of...
