Review quote

A welcome addition to both undergraduate and graduate courses in urban economics, urban planning, urban development and related courses. * Urban Studies * Shlomo Angel argues forcefully and persuasively ... the author cogently presents the case for the creation of a housing policy environment that harnesses market incentives to achieve efficient and equitable housing outcomes. Housing Policy Matters is clearly a major and path-breaking work on housing policy in a global context ... a well-written, substantial book for a wide urban policy audience. It's arguments, evidence and insights deserve serious thought. * Urban Studies *show more
