How Australia Created a Housing Crisis

And what we can do to fix it

Australia is in the midst of a housing crisis. Across the country, house prices have skyrocketed, putting the prospect of buying a home well out of reach for too many people. Rents have also soared, placing huge financial pressure on people and pushing many into homelessness. The current system is clearly broken, but what went wrong?

Join housing advocate and creator of Jordan van den Berg (aka @purplepingers), Maiy Azize from the national housing campaign Everybody’s Home, and Australia Institute Senior Economist Matt Grudnoff will examine how Australia got itself into this situation – and how it can get out of it.
