The Cost of Housing

We have a housing crisis in the US that has been in the spotlight since the recession hit a few years ago. It seems that we overbuilt, people overextended, and banks preyed off the situation making record profits only to come crashing down and dragging the country's economy with it. However, often we fail to realize that globally there is a different sort of housing crisis, as in there isn't enough affordable housing to offer shelter to the world's exploding population. This info graphic highlights some of the statistics related to housing issues around the globe.
