The impacts of the so-called global crisis are, in fact, highly uneven for both households and institutions. This unique book investigates why this is the case, whilst emphasizing the consequences. It encompasses the experiences of all the major economies, including: Australia, China, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, the Netherlands, South Korea, the USA, the UK and Vietnam, highlighting and comparing a wide range of housing systems and crisis impacts.
