The value of property is linked more closely to income and ability to pay tax than many people think, according to new research by the Institute for Employment Research at the University of Warwick.
With council tax still a hot issue, a study sponsored by the ESRC and led by Dr Michael Orton, of the University of Warwick, found that the problem of people on low incomes living in high value properties may also be less common than often assumed.
Dr. Orton said: "We found that for owner-occupiers there is overall a clear and positive relationship between household income and property value, with few exceptions. This remains the case when different measures of property value are used, and is the same for couples or single people.

Professor Andrew Oswald is calling for the introduction of "Global Warming Bonds".
He suggests that governments should issue “Global Warming Bonds”, to compensate individuals, companies and countries who cut fossil fuel emissions. The idea is that the bonds would start to pay out around the year 2045 and would be paid for by our grandchildren through taxation.
You can see a short news item on the idea by following the link above, or alternatively the whole of the presentation is available.
You can also read about the research in the latest issue of Warwick - the Magazine.
