From the housing crisis to inequality and Formula One: here are the year's finest long readsby Prospect Team / December 15, 2015 / Leave a comment
As always, Prospect has spent this year publishing forensic analysis on the biggest issues of the day. Here, we faced the tough task of selecting our favourites. In the end we’ve settled on 12 pieces which are exceptional in their originality and depth, which cover topics ranging from inequality to Formula One–from the housing crisis to the fall of the Sloane Ranger. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
Andrew Adonis, Labour peer and, since October, chair of the National Infrastructure Commission, puts forward a “simple but difficult” solution to our housing crisis, which we ran as the cover piece of our October issue. We need more than 200,000 homes built a year, and through compelling examples (did you know that Islington Council owns 150 large council estates?) Adonis makes a convincing case that public sector land is an essential part of the solution.
