(p.207) Six A Homeownership Consensus?
A World of Homeowners

Nancy H. Kwak

University of Chicago Press

In an era of explosive urban poverty and declining congressional support for American bilateral aid programs in the early 1970s, the World Bank took a more active role, beginning in Senegal and moving subsequently to Tanzania, Zambia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and more. Bank officials shared common goals of privatization, strengthened mortgage institutions, and owner-occupied homeownership, but like those managing earlier US aid programs, they bumped up against innumerable practical difficulties as well as objections from residents. Tensions between homeownership-as-ideology and homeownership-as-practice continued to dominate the story of housing aid, this time for the World Bank, and well into the twenty-first century.
