Henry Halloran Lecture - Myth: Increasing housing supply leads to more affordable homes (6-8pm)

  • Veterinary Science Conference Centre Regimental Dr, Camperdown NSW 2050 (map)

listen online.

Professor Laurence Murphy, University of Auckland in conversation with Hon Craig Knowles AM.

Is the solution to housing affordability in Sydney and other Australian cities more supply? Recent evidence from Sydney does not seem to support this suggestion. Professor Murphy will examine the relationship between housing supply and house prices and draw conclusions for housing policy-makers.

While public debate centres on the role of political donations as a way to buy favours from politicians, relationship networks tell a far more interesting story.

Laurence Murphy is Professor of Property at The University of Auckland Business School and had held posts at Trinity College Dublin, Queen's University Belfast and the London School of Economics. He has published widely on property topics including home ownership, social rental housing, mortgage securitisation, office development, the institutional evolution of listed property trusts, finance capital and entrepreneurial urban governance.

The lecture will be introduced by the Hon Craig Knowles AM. Craig was previously the Minister of Planning and the Minister of Planning in the Carr Government. He has a number of current roles including President, the Asthma Foundation of New South Wales, Director of the Children's Medical Research Institute and Chairman of the Murray Darling Basin Authority.
