113. Housing Shock – Homes for People, Not for Investors: is this the turning point in housing?

In this Reboot Republic, Rory talks to Kildare Councillor Aidan Farelly, member of the Social Democrats, youth worker, and Lecturer in the Department of Applied Social Studies Maynooth.

They talk about the recent Maynooth development being bought up by an investment fund, the locked out generation who cant afford to buy or rent, how policy has created this crisis, through the scandal of social housing leasing and real estate investor tax breaks. They outline that we need a shift to a housing system based on values of housing as a human right. Its time to push out the investors and provide housing as homes.
