    The accumulation of decent housing matters both because of the difference it makes to living standards and because of its centrality to economic development. The consequences for living standards are far-reaching. In addition to directly conferring utility, decent housing improves health and enables children to do homework. It frees up women's time and enables them to participate in the labor market. More subtly, a home and its environs affect identity and self-respect.

    Across the developing world, public
    goods exert significant impacts on the local rural economy
    in general and agricultural productivity and welfare
    outcomes in particular. Economic and social-cultural
    heterogeneity have, however, long been documented as
    detrimental to collective capacity to provide public goods.
    In particular, women are often under-represented in local
    leadership and decision-making processes, as are young

    Housing matters to the livability of
    cities and to the productivity of their economies. The
    failure of cities to accommodate the housing needs of
    growing urban populations can be seen in the proliferation
    of poorly serviced, high-density informal settlements. Such
    settlements are not new in the history of rapidly growing
    cities, their persistence results as much from policies as
    from economics and demographic transition. Slums have

    Countries everywhere are divided into
    two distinct spatial realms: one urban, one rural. Classic
    models of development predict faster growth in the urban
    sector, causing rapid migration from rural areas to cities,
    lifting average incomes in both places. The process
    continues until the marginal productivity of labor is
    equalized across the two realms. The pattern of rising
    urbanization accompanying economic growth has become one of
