Housing Shock: The Irish Housing Crisis and How To Solve It
The housing and homelessness crisis in Ireland is having profound impacts on Generation Rent. It harms the wellbeing of children, worsening wider inequality and threatening the economy.
Hearne contextualises the Irish housing crisis within the broader global housing situation. He does this by examining the origins of the crisis in terms of austerity, marketisation and the new era of financialisation, where global investors are making housing unaffordable and turning it into an asset for the wealthy.
He brings to the fore the perspectives of those most affected, new housing activists and protesters whilst providing innovative global solutions for a new vision for affordable, sustainable homes for all.
