Housing sucks up more of our income and more of our savings than anything else. It represents around 60% of Britain's assets. From soaring homelessness to widening wealth inequality, the relationship between the British people and our homes is deeply troubled: you can't understand the crisis in the UK economy without understanding what's happened to housing and land.

I had a chat with Laurie in the NEF offices to find out more – enjoy.
