Gentrification in big cities

Gentrification is a phenomenon expressing in replacement or expulsion of the poor class from the urban center. It is a consequence of speculative strategies in the real estate sector and growing demands of classes with higher purchasing power. The development of gentrification can be explained by lack of public policies to control housing prices and insufficient regulation in this area, originating from the measures to ensure diversity in the cities and make them affordable to a wide group of population in general.
