Millennials spend a quarter of income on housing. How do we fix what Resolution calls Britain's housing catastrophe?

Millennials spend a quarter of income on housing. How do we fix what Resolution calls Britain's housing catastrophe? | Research in the news using data in the UK Data Service Collection | Scoop.it
A 50 year drain on living standards, is the effect of what the Resolution Foundation describes as Britain’s “housing catastrophe”.  If you consider its figures you’ll see why “crisis”, an adjective stripped of much of its power by over use, no longer cuts the mustard.  The so called ‘Silent Generation’ that grew up prior to the Second World War (1926-1945) spent just 7 per cent of its income on housing at the age of 30.
