Summary

China’s ever-expanding housing market is presenting challenges for policy makers, planners, business people and citizens, not only in Chinese cities, but across the global housing market. With soaring prices and a significant compromise on quality, those who need housing are facing financial difficulties, as well as worsening standards in public health.

This book examines the impact of these changes on the general population, as well as aspiring homeowners and developers. The contributors look at the effect on the widening of wealth gaps, stagnated economic growth, and threats political and social stability.

Though focussing on China, the editors present discussions of specific policy design challenges encountered in Australia, Japan, Korea, The Netherlands, the Nordic Countries, Singapore, Taiwan, the UK, and the US. This book would be of interest to housing policy makers as well as academics who are studying the social and political effects of the Chinese housing market.
