New mortgage loans and access to housing: inequalities and segregation in the city of La Plata, Argentina


Gabriel Losano*

In the Argentine economy, both the dollar and real estate is a financial asset. That means, its demand is oriented to obtain future income. Therefore, the real estate market, in the main Argentine cities, is quoted in the US currency. This led to the fact that, in recent decades, urban and sectorial construction policies have exacerbated certain critical problems of their cities, such as strong contrasts and social inequalities in which segregation conditions and high levels of poverty prevail. The housing problem not only takes on particular relevance, but already affects the most impoverished sectors of its inhabitants.
