Danny Dorling on the housing crisis: “it can’t be left to market forces”

On NovaraFM, James Butler, Dawn Foster and Danny Dorling discussed the housing crisis in contemporary Britain.

Professor Danny Dorling, talking about the empty blocks of flats littering cities:

“Housing doesn’t work by the laws of supply and demand. It’s not that type of good.”

“The market will not provide the houses.”

“In the 1970s it was possible to make the theoretical argument that the market will sort everything out. We’ve done that experiment now – the results are bad.”
