Alan Ahearne in the Irish Times: More homes in right places needed to prevent bubble

Wednesday, 30 April 2014

In an article in the Irish Times of 26th April 2014, Dr Alan Ahearne, Head of Economics at NUI Galway, writes that the Government's forthcoming strategy document for the construction sector must convince people that there is a plan to ramp up supply of housing in the right places. Otherwise, he writes, there is a danger that recent rapid increases in house prices in parts of the country will become embedded in expectations for future prices.
