Description

This innovative book analyzes the changes that financial globalization is bringing about in the housing and home-finance markets of the United States, Japan, and South Korea, with special attention to the circumstances of women in obtaining housing, credit, and personal security. The book's focus on changes in the residential and housing finance markets serves as a window for an integrated examination of how the liberalization of national financial markets has affected the relationship among all players in each of the three economies - government, markets, and individual citizens. Through this examination Housing Finance Futures develops a new critical response to economic globalization based on a groundbreaking concept, the social efficiency of policy and market shifts.
