Housing investment: lessons for the future

Michael Ball

In the 1990s, housebuilding is at an historic low.

In this investigation of its causes, Michael Ball of South Bank University, London, has examined the reasons for this. He concludes that more house-building is needed to avoid housing shortages and growing affordability problems, most affecting those on low incomes and at the start of the housing ladder. Growing shortages could spark off another house-price boom by the turn of the century.
