Geography Exam Question HelpWatch
I looked in my revision guide and online but I still don't understand the question.
Basically, how does money going in and out of a city affect the social divide?
I’d suggest the case study such as the London Docklands Development Cooperation. Since the government put in money, but gentrification of the docklands area shifted the poverty to the surrounding area, and displaced the locals. This increased the socio-economic divide, since jobs weren’t provided that the precious dock workers could access, and therefore they could no longer afford to live in the docklands. But many multinational, expensive companies moved to the area, and young, rich professionals.
