Have you ever wondered why cities are designed the way they are? Or what is the impact of buying a home in a suburban neighbourhood? We dive into this and more in this week's episode of Money Feels!

We're your hosts, Alyssa and Bridget. Welcome to the podcast, where we talk through our money trauma and create a better understanding of building a healthy relationship with finance.

In today's episode, we discuss the following?

  • What is urban sprawl? 
  • How does urban sprawl impact our economy and our personal finances?
  • The socioeconomic impact of community fragmentation
  • Transportation is at the core of everything
  • Gentrification and economic disparities 
  • How to invest in communities and neighbourhoods that already exist
  • Is this all the result of the capitalist economy? As always?
