Video: How to fix the housing crisis – Guyon Espiner and guests at Ika Table Talk


Economist Shamubeel Eaqub, Auckland mayoral candidate Vic Crone, Alan Johnson of the Salvation Army Policy Unit, and Leonie Freeman from Goodman Property Trust discuss the crisis of homelessness and affordable house prices with Guyon Espiner.

The latest Ika Table Talk, titled “Can’t We Fix This Housing Thing?” sold out within hours of being announced.

On Tuesday night, the panel of experts tackled the most pressing political issue of the moment, with RNZ Morning Report host Guyon Espiner moderating like the pro he is.

Because you were too slow or too busy or too cheap or too living somewhere else to come along, the Spinoff recorded the whole thing. Below, some highlights, starting with surveys around the panel asking for the best single fix for homelessness and whether housing is a human right.
