Rhiannon Evans - The Empress of Rome - Property, Australia's Favourite Obsession


Rhiannon Evans - The Empress of Rome

Today we are traveling back to Ancient Rome to see ALL of our drivers in action!

And who better to help guide us around the Ancient Empire of Rome than Associate Professor Dr Rhiannon Evans from LaTrobe University.

Rhiannon co-hosts a podcast called the Emperors of Rome and when I first heard it I thought "WOW there are our 5 Drivers again!"

As listeners If you can recognise the drivers in an ancient society then hopefully I can help you recognise them in todays.

Those of you who have followed my work for some time will have heard me say over and over again how things are "Same, Same, but Different" 

That history repeats and as much as things change, they don’t. 

History shows us that humans have always had and always will have a connection to land. Our very existence depends on it and if we view history within the context of the time we will see the 5 Drivers of Property Prices are always apparent.

And this episode is NO different.

Its all about those same 5 Drivers that underpin and continue to propel property prices higher and higher.

Jeremy Calnan

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.
