The author primarily explains the context and reasons for his proposal from the previous chapter. He believes that the proposed policy change would be conducive to alleviating a portion of the deep contradictions in our community between the haves and the have-nots. The author also speaks of two more initiatives which the government has to take into account, and the first one is to identify more suitable Tenants Purchase Scheme (TPS) units for sale in stages to sitting tenants in an attempt to facilitate upward mobility of the have-nots. Secondly, some future public housing estates should contain a clause which offers sitting tenants the option of purchasing the unit at a predetermined price after a certain period.
