Helping Generation Rent become Generation Buy:

Addressing housing market challenges

February 7, 2021

This paper’s contribution to the housing policy debate is to outline the policies that are needed on the demand side.

Now, there needs to be a shift away from direct interventions such as help to buy or temporary freezes in stamp duty, says Gerard Lyons.
