SMART CITIES PROPAGANDA


Brendan Coates, the economic policy program director at the Grattan Institute, said in order to address the housing crisis, high-density housing should be encouraged in cities, negative gearing should be abolished and the capital gains tax discount reduced.


In a wide-ranging speech on Wednesday night, Coates also called for renting to be made more attractive, including by increasing commonwealth rent assistance by 40%, and he demanded greater investment in social housing.
