CPD Research Committee Member Peter Mares investigated the Australian housing market for ABC Radio National. You can access the four-part series here.

COVID-19 has exposed the failings of Australia’s housing system like never before: rough sleeping, homelessness, the insecurity of renting, and a real estate boom-bust cycle.

Writer and researcher Peter Mares visits four capital cities, to investigate what’s gone wrong with housing in Australia, and what we might do about it.
