Ep.48 Generation Rent – Why You Can’t Buy a Home or Even Rent a Good One

This Reboot Republic Podcast talks to Chloe Timperley, author of Generation Rent: Why You cant buy a home (or even rent a good one) about what is the housing crisis of Generation Rent, insecurity, unaffordability, and rogue landlords. Chloe outlines the situation in the UK – how Generation rent has been locked into permanent unaffordable renting, the future crisis of what happens when they retire, the growing inequality between those who can access the bank of mom and dad and those who don’t have access to intergenerational housing wealth. Chloe also outlines some solutions set out in her book, such as reducing the speculation in real estate – a land value tax, the necessity for building public housing and moving away from treating housing an asset.
