“Global China and Vancouver’s housing market”

The presentation discusses how the Vancouver residential market has become increasingly uncoupled from its local economy and drawn into a larger trans-Pacific investment regime in the period since 1986. That incorporation was the direct result of a series of public policy decisions that favoured globalization with minimal regulation or monitoring. These policies have led to a housing market that is severely unaffordable to local residents.
