Abstract

This paper is intended to provide some simple frameworks from which some pertinent policy questions can be answered concerning the slum. Accordingly, in the next section we briefly highlight the results achieved by three existing economic approaches which I refer to as ga-me-theoretic approach, competitive theoretic approach and macro-economic in-come-based approach. In the third section we establish models which clarify many of the issues raised in the second section.
