Home Truths: The UK's chronic housing shortage - how it happened, why it matters and the way to solve it [9781785904691]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Housing is increasingly unaffordable in many parts of the UK, with prices and rents rising much faster than earnings because, over many decades, far too few homes have been built.

Since the 2008 financial crisis, the homes shortage has become more acute - sending housing affordability to the top of the political agenda.

Combining analysis with reportage, Home Truths draws on extensive interviews with cabinet ministers, civil servants, planning officials, leading property executives and priced-out homebuyers from across the country.

Informed by deep economic research and political access at the highest level, the book is a no-holds-barred critique of the UK's chronic housing shortage, concluding with eye-catching policy proposals of direct relevance to both Parliament and regional and national government.

AUTHOR: Liam Halligan has written his weekly Economic Agenda column in the Sunday Telegraph since 2003 and has been recognised with a British Press Award. He is Editor-at-Large of bne-IntelliNews and has extensive business experience.
