Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City

Evicted: Poverty & Profit in the American City

MacArthur 'Genius' award winning ethnographer Matthew Desmond speaks about his investigation into the low-income rental market and eviction in privately owned housing, and argues it is a cause, not just a symptom, of poverty.

He explores how struggling families survive and how entrenched poverty and racial inequality are built and sustained by housing policies in large cities.

Event chaired by Dr Michael McQuarrie of the LSE Department of Sociology.
