    From RN’s Blueprint for Living program this morning:

    “Say you’re planning a visit to Tasmania this Summer. You look up a short-stay accommodation website, find a light-filled apartment in central Hobart (the owners of which are handily absent for the duration of your stay) and proceed to book. It’s a transaction that seems innocuous enough, but some say it’s keeping locals out of housing for good.”
