Loong feels that people’s lives have become constrained by high property prices. Even if they manage to afford the down payment, they still need to make the mortgage payments. Therefore, they are afraid of being fired by their bosses and do not dare to take risks.
“It is time to reflect on the ‘success formula’ of the old generation,” says Loong. He does not believe the young generation in Hong Kong is short-sighted or lack ambition. Rather, he thinks it is the objective reality that hinders their freedom to explore different possibilities in life like their counterparts in Western countries.
