If you thought the housing crisis was bad now, it's only going to get worse for the next generation, according to a new report.

The study from the libertarian think-tank The New Zealand Initiative has used up-to-date data to predict population growth until 2060.

It shows we are building about half as many houses each year as we need to keep up.

Leonard Hong is from The New Zealand Initiative.
