Thousands are homeless, tens of thousands are languishing on socialhousing waiting lists, even more are unable to afford to rent or buy.Why is our housing system so dysfunctional? Why can it not meetsocial and affordable housing needs?Home: Why Public Housing is the Answer examines the structuralcauses of our housing emergency, provides a detailed critique ofgovernment housing policy from the 1980s to the present and outlinesa comprehensive, practical and radical alternative that would meetthe housing needs of the many, not just the few.For three decades Government policy has been marked by anundersupply of social housing and an over-reliance on the privatemarket to meet housing needs. Housing has become a commodity,not a public good. The result is a dysfunctional housing system that isleaving more and more people unable to access appropriate, secureand affordable homes.The answer, as argued in this transformative new book, lies inestablishing a Constitutional right to housing, large scale investment ina new model of public housing to meet social and affordable housingneed, real reform of the private rental sector and regulation of privatefinance, development and land.
