    1. Where is Soho district? Have you been to Soho? What ‘unique character’ does it have?

    2. How do surging rents affect Hong Kong? Do you agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market? Why?

    2.Rising rent can lead bars tobe collapsed. I think government should not interfree the market because Hong Kong is a free market.

    1. It is in Central and I've never been there. There are many local artists performing there.
    2. When the rent is too high, so people cannot affect and the shop may have to raise the price of the products to make more money, some people don't have much money can't afford the product. I think the government should not interfere the market since Hong Kong is unique for its free market.

    The surging rents has brought adverse impacts for small-business owners, artists and cultural and creative iindustries.
    To a certain extent I agree his view. The government shouldn't interfere the free market because this may affect Hong Kong's basis of capitalist ruling; or even distract foreign investments as well.

    1. SoHo is at Centre. But I have never been to there.
    2. There are not much income when the owners are running their bar. Besides, the property price keep surging so that it would be a big problem for the bar owners to survive.

    Soho district is in Central. I have not been there before. It is becoming the latest victims of surging rents.

    Surging rents affect Hong Kong a lot. When the rents is surging, people may be cannot handle those rents so that many shop will be closed. For example, small businesses in the Soho district are becoming the latest victims of surging rents. It can show us how serious the rents problem it is.
    I agree with the property agents’ view that the government should not interfere in the free market. Hong Kong is a free market and it is the biggest reason that there was a lot of investors come to Hong Kong to invest. If government interferes in the free market, investors may not interest in Hong Kong and find another place to invest. Then, Hong Kong market’s outlook will be gloomy.

    1. It is in Central. I have been to Soho. It have a lot of bars there and was very famous.

    2. It will affect the artist in h.k. . I don't agree with the agents' in Hong Kong since it cause the artist do not have money to rent place for playing music.

    I don't agree with the property owners add expensive rent to small business, I think government can help this business owner's to make free market for them.

    It makes small companies 'disappear' when they cannot afford to pay the rent. I agree with the property agent's view. I think Hong Kong as a free market is better.

    1) It's in Central. I haven't been there. It allows musicians to perform.
    2) It makes people hard to buy flats and some SMEs are forced to close down due to high operation cost. This took away places where HK people live and where they have fun. It leads to intense discontent, people may demonstrate about this. This created an anti-conglomerate and anti-rich sentiment which severely divided HK and harm the harmonious living atmosphere.

    1)Soho district is in Central. I have not been there before. There are many different kinds of restaurants with various culture.
    2) Some staffs are unemployed and it rises the unemployment rate of Hong Kong. I agree with his view because everyone has their right to open business, so the small companies in Hong Kong can survive.

    1. Soho District is in Central and I have never been there before. I think the 'unique character' it has is that local or even international artists can feel free to perform there and therefore I believe it is kind of a place full of art.
    2. The surging rents have caused a lot of people cannot buy their own flats or have their own business. This, I believe, will definitely have a long-term effect on both the economy and image of Hong Kong. And I agree with the property agent's view. Hong Kong is well-known with it's free market. If the government does interfere it, it will no longer be a 'free' market.
