Even before property prices started skyrocketing in the past year, buying a new home was unaffordable for many young Australians
And today, with the huge surge in prices we’ve experienced, the dream of homeownership feels like it’s moving completely out of reach of many young families.
So, are we moving into a society of property haves and have nots?
Well, that’s one of the topics I’m going to be discussing on today’s show with Federal Parliamentarian Tim Wilson who has been outspoken with his views on housing and superannuation. And, interestingly as you’ll hear, one of his roles as Chair of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics is overseeing Philip Lowe, the Governor of the Reserve Bank.
We’re going to be discuss a range interesting topics, and then at the end, I’ll leave you with my mindset message.
Interview with Tim Wilson
In today’s show, I talk about the future of housing and tax in Australia with Tim Wilson who has served as the Federal Liberal Member for Goldstein since 2016 and currently serves as Chair of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics.
Now I must declare that Tim is my local member of parliament, but I don’t want today’s show to be a political discussion, however, I am interested in an insider’s view of what’s going on with the economy and in particular our property markets.
