Podcast: Australia’s property boom and bust cycle stretches back to colonial days

GUEST OBSERVATION

Australia’s property market is slowing and many people are contemplating a possible bust. But in this episode of Essays On Air (available to stream or download from this link) reminds us that even since colonial days, Australia’s property market has had its ups and downs.

Today, University of Sydney urbanism researchers Alistair Sisson and Dallas Rogers narrate a recent essay they wrote for the journal Australian Geographer on boom and bust cycles in major Australian cities.

It’s titled Property speculation, global capital, urban planning and financialisation: Sydney Boom, Sydney Bust redux. It was recorded and edited by Dallas Rogers and written with Alistair Sisson and Chris Gibson for the 100th anniversary of the journal Australian Geographer.

The audio version features the voices of Roderick Chambers and Kevin Suarez, producers from the community radio station 2SER.

The authors would like to acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, upon whose land their research takes place.
