The Road Map to Ethical Housing and Economic Recovery Lies in a Public House Building Programme – Huffington Post
Not the most catchy headline, but Eoin Barry makes the case for house building as a driver of prosperity and economic growth as well as a route out of the housing crisis.

He writes: “The Home Builders Federation say that every home built creates 1.5 jobs immediately but also four times that number in the mainstream workforce. Thus, it is conceivable that 100,000 homes would add at least a full 1% to GDP, and increase the tax take by nearly £3billion whilst simultaneously decreasing the welfare bill by at least the same amount through reduced unemployment. The road map to ethical housing and economic recovery lies in a public house building programme.”

Good read, like the rest of the Huff Post site.
