Shamubeel Eaqub and Andrew Dean
Are we stealing from our children and grandchildren? There’s a generation who will never own their own homes – already half the population live in rental housing. Can a rental property still become a home? Can we change the way the rental market works?
Shamubeel Eaqub and his partner Selena are both economists and they are about to start a family in an Auckland rental property. Shamubeel talks about the changes that could turn their house into a home. They will be publishing a book on the topic in April and we plan to launch the book at this session.
He is joined by Rhodes Scholar Andrew Dean who is researching and writing about wider issues of generational inequality.
