Economic Lecture Series

Two down but still two lectures to go.

Another successful lecture has been held in our four-part Economic Lecture Series for anyone keen to learn more about the basics of housing economics.

Housing economics for non-economists - hosted by Shelter WA and Curtin's Faculty of Business and Law - is a four-part lecture series covering a variety of topics which impact on planning policy, housing and housing markets.

 

Last night's lecture focused on taxation and housing outcomes.

Professor Rachel Ong, Professor of Economics School of Economics, Finance and Property at Curtin University and a recent recipient of the Professor Mike Berry Award for Excellence in Housing Research, lead a discussion with attendees on tax and its implications on housing outcomes. After the lecture Sadie Davidson; Advocacy and Policy Manager at REIWA, Lisa Kazalac; Senior Policy Advisor, Shelter WA and Professor Ong engaged participants in a Q&A panel session on the topics learnt.

It's not too late.
