Neglected Dimensions in Low-Income Housing and Development Programs

Abstract

First, this Article analyzes, from the perspective of the poor, the effect of political, economic, social and legal relationships on past and proposed subsidized housing systems. Secondly, we consider why past programs failed to fulfill their promise and why proposed "New Federalist" solutions are similarly doomed. Neither has faced the need for change in political, social and legal relationships nor the basic economic problems. Finally, we outline the elements of a subsidized housing system design that gives proper weight to these relationships.
