Graeme Hugo Memorial Lecture: Does migration drive up house prices?

Introduced by Professor Mike Brooks, Provost & Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), The University of Adelaide

Date: 1pm - 1.50pm | Saturday 14 July 2018

Venue: AHMS GO30

Housing has become unaffordable in many developed countries – in Australia perhaps more so than in others. A particularly evocative explanation is that the volume of immigration is mostly to blame. Chris Leishman will aim to expose the degree of truth of this view, and hopes to introduce some new, disruptive and challenging ideas as food for thought for researchers and politicians alike.
