The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has, in its recent consultation on Norway, stated that household debt and house prices are a major risk for Norwegian economy. They also estimate the housing market, especially in Oslo to be overvalued.

Is the Norwegian housing market overvalued, and in that case how should the Norwegian government deal with that problem?

Are the solution even stricter mortgage requirements?

And what about the mortgage requirements impact on equality, given the generous Norwegian taxation of home ownership?

Guests: Mission Chief for Norway, Jacques Miniane, The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Deputy Head of Research, André K. Anundsen, Housing Lab, Oslo Met.
