Housing policies, however, tended to be framed by the government from a social rather than economic perspective. Despite explicit recognition of the need for housing, dedicated programmes have only benefited from low public spending. Housing and subsidies have largely synonymous with each other, hence a tendency to view housing finance from the angle of the government’s cash budget, rather than as a developmental activity with tremendous spin-offs to the economy.
