Have market forces failed the New Zealand housing market? We take a look at our housing crisis and how other countries around the world have found answers. What’s stopping us from using those offshore solutions?​

Most people acknowledge New Zealand has a housing crisis, but what are the causes and solutions?

This first episode of House Talk unpicks the complex issues of land supply, inter-generational housing, papakainga, state housing, and government funding of affordable housing.

A recurring theme is the success other countries have had in sorting out their housing – so why can’t we do the same?
