Could Gentrification Stop the Poor from Benefiting from Urban Improvements?
- (pp. 532-37)
AbstractWhen policymakers invest in urban infrastructure, there are concerns that poor residents living near the infrastructure will be displaced. This paper investigates mechanisms that may lead to such infrastructure-induced gentrification using a general equilibrium urban commuting model. Our goal is to elucidate the channels through which infrastructure-induced gentrification occurs and understand how policy choices mitigate or accentuate gentrification.
