Book on Wealth and Homeownership

In almost every country, wealth is predominantly constituted by housing equity, but what are the possible risks and how does wealth accumulation vary across countries? In this timely book, Mariacristina Rossi (Associate Professor of Economics, University of Torino) and Eva Sierminska (LISER Research Fellow), extending previous works issued in LIS Working Papers 654, just published a new book called Wealth and Homeownership – Women, Men and Families.

They analyse the complex relationship between gender, wealth and homeownership. By providing a conceptual framework to insert homeownership and housing decisions within an economic rationale, the authors explore how gender and family types have shaped wealth accumulation and homeownership.
