Hugo Lecture 2018

14 July 2018

The 2018 Graeme Hugo Memorial lecture was presented by Professor Chris Leishman.

Professor Leishman addressed the topic: Does migration drive up house prices?

Housing has become unaffordable in many developed countries – in Australia perhaps more so than in others. A particularly evocative explanation is that the volume of immigration is mostly to blame. Chris Leishman will aim to expose the degree of truth of this view, and hopes to introduce some new, disruptive and challenging ideas as food for thought for researchers and politicians alike.
