Making better economic cases for housing – seminar invitation reminder

Making better economic cases for housing: Seminar on new UNSW City Futures Research Centre report

Museum of Sydney, Bridge Street – Thursday 8 March 5.30-7.30

There is a strong case for housing to be treated as an essential form of productive, economic infrastructure. Sub-optimal housing system performance can have damaging economic effects. A recent news report suggests this perception may be gaining traction within the NSW Government.

City Futures researchers led by UNSW Visiting Professor Duncan Maclennan recently completed a study on the implications of housing market performance for the wellbeing of individuals and the growth and productivity of the city economy as a whole. The study was supported by the Greater Sydney Commission and the NSW Federation of Housing Associations.

Speakers:

Professor Duncan Maclennan (University of Glasgow and UNSW)
Dr Jennifer Westacott (Business Council of Australia)
Dr Judy Yates (University of Sydney and UNSW)
Dr Marcus Spiller (SGS Economics and Planning)
