In November 2009 researchers from Heriot Watt and St Andrews universities participated in a seminar on the housing market crashes and their consequences in the USA and the Netherlands. This seminar on 22nd January 2010 took the opportunity of a visit by Michael Lennon (Chief Executive, Hosuing Choices Australia) to discuss recent shifts in the Australian economy and national housing policies. Michael currently combines his time as Chief Executive of Australia’s fastest growing non-profit housing provider with a part time role advising the radically rejuvenated Housing Ministry in the Federal Government.
