Capital gains tax and inflation.

Capital gains and inflation

You people, and many other commentators, fail to get whole the CGT situation.
For example if you bought a house in 1990 for say $150,000 (in 1990 dollars) and you sell it in 2016 for $500,000 everyone says you made a gain of $350,000 and you pay tax on that amount (discounted be what ever rate is than current) in present dollars. But all you have in 2016 is the value of one house in present dollars.
We really should revert to taxing the real gains (based on real inflation) – at 100 per cent if you like.
