Chicago's Near South Side: revisiting the South Loop and South Armour Square, 2001

Description

After the Housing Act of 1949 was established, cities and states in the United States built thousands of housing units for low-income families. This paper argues that such large social investments could be sustained only through the steady, rapid growth of the economy of the United States, and a political agreement among business, labour and government that the proceeds of such growth would be shared equitably.
