A most valuable overview of the responses of the housing sector in different countries to changing local priorities. This volume clearly demonstrates the substantial and uneven consequences of recent trends toward greater fiscal restraint.

The past 15 years have witnessed a period of fiscal austerity in North America and Western Europe. This period of financial restraint has been accompanied by shifts in government housing policy and private investment in housing. This important collection of original articles on the subject will be of great significance to geographers, urban planners, urban economists, and all others interested in recent trends in housing policy.
