Dr. Lee Gray - Elevating Society

This week we are joined by Dr. Lee Gray, Senior Associate Dean at the College of Arts & Architecture at UNC Charlotte to discuss the impact the elevator/lift has had on society and its massive increase in productivity. And as we know, increases in productivity will "elevate" the prices of property!

And don't forget to check out Lee's book: From Ascending Rooms to Express Elevators: A History of the Passenger Elevator in the 19th Century.

I just love investments and I’m obsessed with property.

Ever since I was a young kid and mum used to take me along to open inspections, I’ve had a keen interest in property.

Discussion around our kitchen table used to regularly include the topic of property, I guess you could say it’s in my genes.

Having worked as an investment professional since the early 1990’s the GFC prompted me to ask the question “What causes the share market to crash at regular intervals”.

I found the answer to this question in the study of land economics, which surprised me, until I really thought about it, and then I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it sooner!

Once I understood land economics and the true drivers of the property market, I was provided with a unique insight into how property interacts with the credit and share markets.

More importantly, it brought me back to my obsession with property!

I live in the beautiful city of Adelaide with my wife Alice and my spare time is spent watching my two sons playing AFL football or just relaxing with family and friends.

Professionally I’m a director of Calnan Flack an Investment, Financial Advice and Education Company with my time divided between funds management and the creation of financial education for clients.
