Overview

The general rule with renting a property via a landlord is either pay rent, or get out. It's certainly fair for people that don't pay for their space to be thrown out, but is it always justified? And how bad is this problem really? You might not worry about being evicted, but for many Americans, this fear is real and too common.

If you're looking to learn more about these issues, then look no further than Matthew Desmond's Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. It's been a number one bestseller on Amazon in the Poverty category, and will reveal a whole lot about this topic that you never even imagined could happen.

"It is hard to argue that housing is not a fundamental human need. Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country. The reason is simple: without stable shelter, everything else falls apart."
