A New Approach to Housing / David Duffy on CYBG's Virgin Money Deal - Irish Times Business Podcast

Rip it up and start again - That's what is needed to tackle the housing crisis, according to Orla Hegarty, a lecturer and an assistant professor of Architecture at UCD. On today's episode, she tells Ciaran that tinkering with existing policy isn't working for anybody and a whole new approach is what is needed. She is joined by president of the Construction Industry Federation and managing director of John Flanagan Developments, Dominic Doheny, and Irish Times business journalist Eoin Burke-Kennedy to discuss the problems blighting the construction sector.

In the second half of the show, Ciaran talks to former head of AIB and current chief executive of Clydesdale and Yorkshire banks, David Duffy, about his group's take-over of Virgin Money in a £1.7 billion (€1.94 billion) deal.

But first, Peter Hamilton has a roundup of the week's news, including the Summer Economic Statement and Apple chief Tim Cook's visit to Ireland.
