We're academics who are concerned with the injustice and social problems this situation is currently creating, as well as its potential consequences for the future. We're currently trying to gather information from people who are 'priced out' and the impact that this is having on their lives - with a view to evaluating the extent of the problem and analysing its causes and wider consequences. The information will be used to highlight these issues in the public domain and to influence policy makers and so on. To do this we need your help. See our web page at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/sociology/onthetreadmill/ or contact us on soc231@abdn.ac.uk (University of Aberdeen)

At last! Someone is realising that the social implications of this are going to be massive! Good luck with your research :)

I think there will be some far-reaching structural effects that can now no longer be circumvented.

Some pertiennt questions for your poll given the current cicumstances might be:

Will you save more or less?

Are you contemplating going into consumption lockdown to save?

Will you be forgoing pension savings till later in life?

Will you be more or less likely to start up a business?

Will you be more or less likely to do charitable work?

If you are in a situation where you are paying for exisitng pensioners without being able to fuind your own what will you do?

Are you considering emigrating?

If so what will happen to elderly realtives as they become infirm?

Will you settle down later in life. Are you less likely to marry?

Do you anticiapte being able to have children, and how many?

Do you anticipate having a stable carerr throughout your life?

If not how will you smooth out the bumps?

Are you relying on inheritance to pay off debts resulting from education/housing/general expenditure?

its a bit late in the day to begin being concerned.

the damage has been done. too many have borrowed too much.

one tiny boost in interest rates and we will all be paying the price of recent unbridled greed.
