In our first Rising Economy video podcast on May 11 at 9:30 a.m., we explore the perfect storm that has led to today’s housing crisis — from supply chain issues to inflation, high land prices, bureaucracy and backpedalling.— and talk to panellists with bold ideas and solutions.

Join us for a lively, informative conversation with expert panelists as we try to untangle the complexities and challenges defining the housing crisis in our region — and look toward real solutions.
