    Abstract:

    Overview of the effect of the housing-crisis on Latino communities in Chicago neighborhoods in comparison to non-Latino White and African-American communities. Concentrates on three interrelated dimensions: mortgage credit availability, foreclosure levels, and property values. Demonstrates that unethical and often illegal marketing of subprime mortgages to lower income Latinos increased their vulnerability to foreclosure.
