Main Theme / Tema Central
This paper explores how land use and housing policies have discriminated against marginalized groups, creating a lack of affordable housing and resulting in economic and social segregation. Smith supports the contention that the lack of affordable housing is not an economic problem, but a political determination: policy makers do not choose to prioritize affordability when new housing is developed.
