Housing and Labor Market Connections: the Portuguese Case
AbstractIn a former research group 1 where I worked (1996 to 1999), the core of the study was to compare the four southern European housing systems - Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece Œ under the assumption that they had a different path other than northern European countries. We had the personal intuition that something could be different iiat homelr. People, history, household structure, life pattern, consumer preferences and even the weather, social communication style and custom traditions would play an important role on housing provision. We tried to understand at what extent could those several differences play a distinctive influence on housing practices, considering the development lag between northern and southern Europe post-II World War.
