Big Picture Podcast with Pete Wargent

Today we scrutinise the Labor Party's ambitious project to build 1.2 million homes and the myriad challenges this initiative faces, such as a shortage of skilled labor and building materials.

The Labor Party's aim to build 1.2 million homes in Australia.

  • There are potential challenges such as skilled labor shortage and material scarcity.
  • The impact of peak dwelling completion and the issues arising from poorly constructed units.
  • The ripple effects of employment, inflation, and fluctuating interest rates on Australia's economy

    • After months of property prices rising, banks have finally updated their forecasts
  • The significant generational wealth transfer from the baby boomers to younger generations
    • The wealth amassed by the baby boomer generation, primarily in residential real estate, and how to effectively pass this wealth onto future generations
    • The implications of baby boomer parents assisting their children in accommodation on Australia's property markets and wealth inequality
    • Instilling good financial habits in children, drawing a strong association between work and earning, and emphasizing the importance of structuring wealth transfer to avoid future complications.
