Wealth and Homeownership. Women, Men and Families

by Maricristina Rossi and Sierminska, Eva, Palgrave, 2018

In almost every country, wealth is predominantly constituted by housing equity,  but what are the possible risks and how does wealth accumulation vary across countries? In this timely book, Rossi and Sierminska analyse the complex relationship between gender, wealth and homeownership. By providing a conceptual framework to insert homeownership and housing decisions within an economic rationale, the authors explore how gender and family types have shaped wealth accumulation and homeownership.
