“The British housing market has “deep, deep” problems, according to the Governor of the Bank of England.
In an interview with Sky’s Murnaghan show, Mark Carney warned that rising house prices represented the biggest current risk to the economy.
He added that the number of large mortgages being approved to house buyers was on the rise and that the UK was in need of new house building.
Mr Carney said: “The issue around the housing market in the UK … is there are not sufficient (numbers of) houses (being) built.”
One of the biggest issues of the UK economy if the constant changes in the housing market. Using the above article passage and any other you may research, write a report analysing what are, the main reasons for those changes. Is the microeconomic or the macroeconomic environment the one that affects prices most? Are the property market challenges linked more to supply or demand?, or maybe we have to consider macroeconomic issues like the exchanges rates, growth and unemployment?
You should include both sides of economics (macro and micro), and elaborate on the most relevant theories.
