Housing affordability has been inching towards crisis in Australia for decades. Now, following months of successive interest rate rises and the ballooning cost of living, many economists and commentators believe we’ve reached a tipping point. Following the release of the state and federal budgets, four experts come together to explore this pressing issue. Veteran financial journalist Alan Kohler, The Age property reporter Jim Malo and TikTok phenomenon Jordan van den Berg (aka Purple Pingers) will address the lay of the land when it comes to housing with host, academic and broadcaster Dr Priya Kunjan. What do economic models and interpretations tell us about how we got here, and what comes next? How can traditional and social media amplify and address the crisis? And what feasible solutions are there for renters and people experiencing housing insecurity – both in the immediate and longer term?
