The Hopkins Group Executive Chairman John Hopkins, Director of Accounting Rachel Williams and Head of Advice Shane Light discuss negative gearing in Australia, how it works, who it benefits, and how Labor’s proposed federal changes could create a distorted housing market.

The team also walks us through the state of Australia’s current housing market, how it compares to 30 years ago and what to expect in the near future.
