Politics at Heart of Housing Crisis

Politics at heart of housing crisis

Australia’s housing crisis isn’t the fault of dodgy developers and greedy landlords, it’s a product of politics and poor leadership.

It might be popular to point fingers at developers and landlords, but this crisis, and it is indeed a crisis, is a socio-political issue that it is up to governments to solve.

Developers aren’t the wicked, greedy sorts they are often made out to be – they are creating a product the same as any other sector of manufacturing. And we don’t expect other businesses to make a loss to solve a policy problem.
