Abstract

The credit crisis has revealed economic inequalities across the world, yet it has emphasized transitions in the way middle class and working class people have handled wealth and consumption. This has mostly been focused in the press on changes in home ownership but has had dramatic effects in how and where people live as well as in their use of automobiles and their living spaces. This paper examines some of these changes in a general context of the degradation of the quality of life of Americans.

Keywords: sharing economy, vacant housing, credit crisis
