Document title

A new look at gentrification : 2. A model of gentrification

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The model proposed is based on the notion that gentrification closes a gap between the flow of housing services fixed in a particular vintage of the housing stock and those available from the most modern properties. This gap is not a rent gap, but an investment gap. Gentrification appears as a problem of maximisation under constraint and a subsubset of general home improvements. The A. concentrates on the supply side issues, and denies that the demand-side issues can be handled via explanations based on postindustrialism, postmodernity, or the rise of a new middle class
