Abstract:
There is a singular and most pressing need to examine factors that contribute towards both homelessness and economic instability, a reflexive relationship that results in consequences directly affecting the other entity, alongside the creation of negative externalities for other sectors of society and economy. There is a need for a study of the same alongside a critical view of the failed government schemes and protocols to remedy this situation. This failure of stateresponse, only when understand with respect to its many flaws which this paper only touches upon in a basic manner, can be truly remedied in a way such that the applied solutions are lasting, pervasive across different regions and demographics, and effective. This paper thus assesses the correlations and relationships between economic crisis situations and the incidence of homelessness, using an economic, social and political lens towards viewing the case of homeless in India -- chosen due to its large-scale occurrence, incidence and more. The paper will also view the potential causes for such homelessness, including the more obvious causes such as expensive housing, lack of government response, and unemployment, but also other more hidden and indirect causes such as the complexities of seasonal employment and the lack of statistics on matriculation from government high schools.
