Ciudades y desigualdad: una mirada a las Áreas Urbanas Funcionales españolas

David Castells-Quintana
Vicente Royuela

El crecimiento de la desigualdad en España tiene una dimensión territorial que va más allá de las diferencias entre regiones. Durante los periodos recesivos las ciudades reciben elevados flujos de población, aunque a costa de ampliar las diferencias de renta dentro de las ciudades y, en consecuencia, aumentando la desigualdad. En este artículo repasamos la literatura sobre las causas y consecuencias de la desigualdad, y visualizamos la desigualdad de ingresos en las Áreas Urbanas Funcionales españolas.
