    "Foreign money may be more likely to leave a market quickly". Is there tangible evidence that this is happening in the housing market? Just for the sake of argument, I'm not doubting it, but if this claim is being made, then it would have been nice for some evidence to have been supplied together with the claim. Otherwise, the impression may be given that there are other, unstated reasons also why such data is claimed as necessary. The old, Walter Gordon style foreign investment review nationalism has been completely discredited.
