|Abstract||Almost on a daily basis, policies to arrest urban problems are proffered. Using a political economic approach, this paper demonstrates that beyond their stated aims - which in many cases are not achieved - urban policies have been designed to unchain hardship in cities and benefit a minority group of politicians and private capital. These findings suggest the need to radically rethink the assumptions on which urban policies are formulated.|
