Cities for sale: real estate logic in times of crisis

Editors: Adauto Lucio Cardoso e Camila D’Ottaviano

 

The scientific production in the field of urban studies has shown the importance of analyses about real estate circuits and their impacts on the structuring of the urban territory in recent decades. Despite some differences concerning local regulatory frameworks, programs and specificities, the reality of the other Latin American countries is very similar to the Brazilian reality: the real estate logic has a great impact on the production of the urban space.

The current moment of ultra-liberal orientation has direct effects on the structure and organization of the cities, which include the emergence of a process of intense centralization and concentration of capital in the real estate sector. It is necessary to investigate the actions of the government and changes in policies and regulations that have allowed alterations in the logic of city production, identifying the importance of the new rules and practices of real estate financing. Furthermore, it is necessary to examine the action of large construction companies in this process.

Since the U.S. subprime crisis (2008), the real estate sector has shown signs of effective loss of economic capacity throughout Latin America. Therefore, we need to evaluate the impacts of the crisis on the performance of the real estate sector, as well as the real estate dynamics and housing financing sources in the regional, national and local spheres. In addition, it is important to evaluate, in this conjuncture, the impact of the crisis on the process of financialization of companies and on the possibility of maintaining the production restructuring patterns, among other themes.

This call for papers aims to contribute to the consolidation of analyses about transformations in real estate production and their various consequences to the production of urban space in metropolises and large cities of Latin America and of other regions and continents. Thus, the intention is to enhance the understanding of the recent structuring of the contemporary urban space at a moment of ultra-liberal orientation of the world’s urban order.
