For over a quarter century our building industry, economy and Government have failed to provide this basic guarantee: new buildings will not rot.
Leaky buildings are the result of an unfortunate confluence of industrial, legislative, historical and cultural factors. Collectively, these elements stubbornly continue to defy a full and final resolution.
Featuring personal stories of homeowners faced with insurmountable repair costs of hundreds of thousands to their `dream home', often leading to sickness, depression and financial loss. And revealed for the first time, withheld government reports that estimate the total cost of leaky dwellings at $47 billion. Rottenomics is an engaging expose into a national crisis that refuses to go away.
