150. The Housing Market is Not Rational

Why Government Housing Policy is Inflating House Prices and Rents, with Mel Renolds

This Reboot Republic talks to Architect and housing analyst, Mel Reynolds, about the current state of the Irish housing market, what will happen with prices and rents, why economists get it wrong with arguments around increased supply leading to reduced house prices. Mel analyses the Housing for All plan, the role of land speculators and investor funds in the Irish housing system, and why Government social housing policy is inflating the market. And the solution: tackle vacancy and dereliction.
