Why can’t you afford a home? Acclaim for our new book on economics of land and housing

NEF economists' book on land and housing receives positive coverage in the Financial Times this week.


It’s no secret that our property market is unsustainable: we are surrounded by the daily signs of a deepening housing crisis and homes now routinely earn more than people.

NEF economists Josh Ryan-Collins and Laurie Macfarlane, alongside Shelter’s Toby Lloyd, tackle the overlooked but central role of land in this ever-pertinent problem in their acclaimed new book Rethinking the Economics of Land and Housing.

The book received a rave review in the Financial Times this week, being described as a lucid exposition of the dysfunctional British housing market.”

Josh and Laurie also contributed a blog to the Zed books website this week, giving a brief but insightful overview of the scale of the crisis.
