R4 Thinking Allowed - all about housing today

Recommended Posts

Really interesting discussion of housing on today's Thinking Allowed, definitely worth a listen, they gave it the whole half hour seems to be last 20 minutes. I only caught the last half, am just about to listen from the beginning. Thought it was a must for here when someone towards the end was talking about "the way in which precarious housing undermines your sense of being at ease in the world" - amen brother.

There was another good one on recently with marxist geographer David Harvey - he's always very good at putting things into words, highly recommend this, too - relistened while waiting for today's to go up. The failure of today's economics to take account of systemic risk, the effect of debt on people - makes you organise your life around it, and of course the nasty manky greedy bloody rich. Didn't we have a discussion on here a while back about marxist economic analysis?

Isn't that just living in the Finsbury Park area?

There is a heavy financial price to pay for that sense of ease. The rich and powerful that own and control land and property in the UK will extract as much as they can from the poor sods without legal privilege over land .
