The former UN Special Rapporteur for the right to housing and Prof of Architecture and Urban Design (Uni Sao Paolo) Raquel Rolnik joins to discuss her new book War on Places. We delve into the seismic shift in housing as a commodified asset.

Prof Rolnik’s work on territorial exclusion (she asked me off-tape about the level of commercial vacancy – yes that is the big one, regularly around 15 -20% in Melbourne)

The largest wealth transfer in living memory

We didn’t get time to discuss it, but Prof Rolnik is also very concerned about Rental Backed Mortgage Securities.

Show Notes
Just how far did Australia’s land prices go? There should have been a drum roll for this announcement! We traverse through the impact of such increases via latest census findings, reference Saul Eslake, geek out on the Productivity Commission’s latest report, delve into Bowie Bonds and finish with some Adani controversy. In the midst of this, Karl takes aim at one of the nation’s leading comedians – when are we going to find a celebrity who is willing to stand for a fairer economic system?

Show Notes
Bryan Kavanagh discusses the failure that is neo-classical economics with the statement “We’ve seen that being ‘trickled on’ doesn’t work”. We discuss this in light of another surprising election result with Jacinda Ardern in NZ (apologies kiwis for my mispronunciation).
