If the measures we take to combat a pandemic reduce economic well-being too much in an effort to protect some citizens from the disease, it will damage the health of other citizens by destroying their livelihoods or prospects.
With the release of the December 2019 quarter figures by the ABS we have just released our most recent housing affordability report. Housing affordability in most cities remains within historically comfortable limits, so this month we also looked at one probable effect of the COVID-19 pandemic – mortgage stress.
Since the previous qualitative poll completed by the Australian Institute for Progress 12 months ago, the Coalition has improved in just about every aspect, apart from its vote against the ALP.
Housing became more affordable in the first quarter of this year everywhere, apart from Hobart and on average homes are more affordable across Australia now than at any time in the last 17 years.
