Why is it that you can't afford a home in Amsterdam anymore? British economist Josh Ryan-Collins will answer these question presenting his latest book. Dutch politicians and economists will discuss how relevant his analysis is for the Netherlands, the country with one of the highest mortgage debts of the world. What is needed to make living in Amsterdam affordable again? Is it building of houses? Or do we need more fundamental financial and economic reform? And if so, which ones exactly?
