考研英语作文 Housing Problem
Housing problem is closely related to population. Some of the big cities in China are now crowded with an ever increasing population. Naturally, one of the most serious problems incurred is that of housing.
As far as the cause of housing problem are concerned, many factors are involved in the first place, with the rapid increase in population, the lack of housing is becoming more evident than ever before. Many old houses have been knocked down to make room for new apartment buildings, which complicates the housing problem for the time being. In the second place, despite the ever-increasing high-rise buildings, the provision of living space still falls far short of demands. Because the society is advancing, city-dwellers long for spacious living. They look forward to decent dwelling places which can protect human dignity. All these factors result in the stress of housing problem.
Various solutions have been suggested. But there seems to be a drawback to each of the solutions. The traditional free allocation of dwellings to the needy adds to the governments burden, while paid allocation brings an equal burden to the average man. The moving of urban residents to the suburbs may ease housing problem in the inner city but gives rises to a traffic problem. The best solution I think is to put the birth rate under control. But we still have a long way to go.
