Letting platform Airbnb has lost more than three quarters of the housing supply in Amsterdam. That reduction is due to the registration requirement that Amsterdam has set. A spokesperson for the municipality confirms the reports of the Volkskrant about this.

Surveys conducted on 28 March and 4 October show that the number of rental addresses on the platform has dropped from 16,648 to 2924. Together with other providers, such as Booking.com, Expedia, Tripadvisor and VRBO, the total number of addresses in Amsterdam went from 18,715 to 4128. Registration requirement

Private individuals who want to offer their home as a holiday address in Amsterdam, have had to register since April. They were given until the beginning of this month to do so. Each tenant must also be reported to the municipality in advance. If any unregistered tenants arrive, the landlords risk a fine. A week before the deadline expired, over 5000 people had applied for a registration number, says the municipality.

With this measure, the capital hopes to limit the nuisance caused by tourists. Earlier, the municipality tried to set restrictions, such as a maximum rental period of thirty days per year and a maximum of four tenants at a time. But because rental platforms do not share data, it was difficult to control.

Airbnb confirms to the Volkskrant that all ads without a registration number have been deactivated in Amsterdam. The Airbnb director in Northern Europe states that the company is voluntarily cooperating with the stricter measures.

Russia welcomes. But really, why is that a shock? They dislike current government, they want to get out. It's easier than trying to solve issues and spend time on doing something.

What I have in mind is that women are being propagandized into thinking real fulfilment comes from work and career and that family life is an afterthought and/or some kind of bondage.

How are they propagandized into such thinking? Honestly, my observations are that people think real fulfillment comes from Instagram photos in fancy places. Traveling, traveling, traveling, leisure time etc. - not work and career. And not only women. But that's just my observations. Maybe career is the key to such life. Don't know.

I agree but that's what has to change. Believe it or not a mere generation ago -- both my grandfathers did this -- a man could raise a large family -- paternal grandad was Catholic and had 8 -- on a single middle class or even working class income while living in a major urban center. None of what we look at around us is an accident and it could change if people wanted it to.

And you are sure that such huge families could give their children enough education? Especially in US, where it's not so cheap?

But you yourself just said that in reality people don't have a choice and I agree.

Yes and no. I see that nowadays everybody has to work. Both people in couples, otherwise they will not have enough money to raise a kid. However, at the same time, are people who actually made a choice and decided they don't want children. Because they don't want society, parents, family, friends to impose any behavior on them. Some of them are traveling, discovering places, they are spending all their money and time on leisure, putting photos on Instagram. They find it fulfilling. Nowadays people are more idividualistic, they couldn't do it earlier because of ostracism, now it starts to slowly disappear. Also, if you look at wealthy countries - why fertility is smaller than in poor countries? That's kind of question I would like to know the exact answer to.

Any source for "half women wouldn't be on antidepressants"?
Could you elaborate on what may be this "something deeper"? What do you have in mind?
I think that the key is to understand that we shouldn't live to work. But we live in capitalistic society, where you either work long hours or die, be it a single man, woman, couple, man with a kid, woman with a kid. Every one of them has to work and care about career, especially singles with kids. Some of them will be happy because of freedom, some of them not. I'm not sure where I'm heading with my words, but still, finally everybody have a choice. Yes, we've got plenty of aggressive corporate social media that literally choose for us what should be want and again, together with capitalism it makes people jealous that others have these expensive clothes/voyages/cars, fantastic careers (or just photos of fantastic careers ;] ) etc., but we should be at least thaught how fake those things are. I don't want to write any more words about it cause it's gonna look like a rant on our civilisation, but yes - I'm quite frustrated, and still think that it's better that people have choice now. Not everybody wants kids, not everybody is capable of raising kids, good to at least have a choice.

Yeah, sadly it occurs in Poland too. They took almost all public entities, they removed concourses for public jobs so you don't need any education in particular topic to work in the department covering the topic. Nepotism and autocracy in its finest/

Finally the Catholic Church sins are being shown. Bad that it created violence, but hopefully it will let devoted people see the reality and the true, not very christian, face of CC during centuries.
