Home Truths: The UK’s chronic housing shortage – how it happened, why it matters by Liam Halligan




Housing is increasingly unaffordable in many parts of the UK with prices and rents rising much faster than earnings because over many decades far too few homes have been built. Since the 2008 financial crisis the homes shortage has become more acute – sending housing affordability to the top of the political agenda. Combining analysis with reportage Home Truths draws on extensive interviews with cabinet ministers civil servants planning officials leading property executives and priced-out homebuyers from across the country. Informed by deep economic research and political access at the highest level the book is a no-holds-barred critique of the UK’s chronic housing shortage concluding with eye-catching policy proposals of direct relevance to both Parliament and regional and national government.
