ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: New Zealand’s Housing Crisis

Here’s what’s happening at this week’s session of the Auckland Uni Economic Group. Why not come along?

New Zealand has a housing obsession. The topic dominates our dinner conversations and it fills our newspapers. 
    A recent OECD report confirms what most of us know: New Zealand's house prices are high by international standards and rising fast. So fast, in fact, that it makes us university students wonder whether we will ever be able to afford a house.
    What has led us to this point and what are the solutions?
    Are such causes market or regulation based, and which form should the solution take?
    What will it take to allow us to get on the property ladder when we leave university?
    At this week’s seminar we are delighted to have Jason Krupp, a Research Fellow at the New Zealand Initiative, address this very topical issue. Jason has published a number of research reports on housing affordability in New Zealand.

   Date: Thursday, 5 June
   Time: 6pm – 7pm
    Location: Case Room Two, Level Zero, Business School, Grafton Rd (plenty of parking below)

We look forward to seeing you there.
