The great housing hijack : the hoaxes and myths keeping prices high for renters and buyers in Australia

Murray, Cameron Keith2024
Books, Manuscripts
Everyone claims to want affordable housing, but no one wants cheap housing. While Australians on regular incomes dream of lower rents and prices, the housing policy debate has been hijacked, sailing further away from workable solutions. Leading economics commentator Cameron Murray reveals how property insiders shape the housing market and its policy settings. He explains what property developers really mean when they demand more supply in order to provide affordable housing. He shows why landlords and the real estate industry resist rent controls and why first home buyer and tax policies of the main political parties achieve little for first home buyers. The hoaxes created by the Housing Cheer Squad hide the brutal truth that for every winner in the property market, there is a loser. For anyone who wants to truly understand the housing market in Australia, The Great Housing Hijack is essential reading. Drawing on the best housing policies around the world, Murray shows how Australia could create a genuinely affordable housing program, without compromising the interests of existing property owners.
