You can listen to me discussing the UK buy to let market with Andrew Burden in the latest University of Nottingham podcast. It is based on research undertaken with my colleague Dr Shaun French and funded by the Financial Services Research Forum. The research will shortly be published as an end of award report for the Forum and as a paper – ‘We all live in a Robbie Fowler house’: the geographies of the buy to let market in the UK – in the British Journal of Politics and International Relations in the summer of 2009 (see post above). The podcast can be accessed by clicking here.
You can also download a recording of me giving a much earlier version of the paper at a workshop on The Political Economy of the Sub-prime Crisis, held at the University of Warwick in September 2008, via iTunes. To access the file, go to the iTunes Store and enter ‘Buy-to-Let, Financialization and the Geographies of Risk’ in the search dialogue box in the top right hand corner. The download is free of charge. (This search should also enable you to click through to recordings of all the academic papers presented at this workshop).
You can also, for a limited time only, also catch an interview I did on the research with BBC Radio Nottingham, which is available on the BBC iPlayer.
