Is it true that by this measure "George Osborne will exacerbate all these problems by further increasing the constituency with an interest in house price inflation and in getting something for nothing." ? I'd have thought that the effect will rather be to reduce the proportion of people able to own homes and to increase the private rented sector in which those priced out of property will be renting to the lucky inheritors. Also horrible, of course, but a different effect.

Hmm. I can see why vulnerability and the idea that we are not transparent to ourselves are important, but I don't see why I should accept more than those generalities and embrace psychoanalytic theory specifically. It looks pretty discredited to me as a scientific theory (which is what Freud himself took it to be).
