This article is about new governments for financial recovery after the financial crisis. The focus on tracing the creation of an active class derived from the security of rental income for detached houses has become rent. The study strategically combines conceptual agendas, and is discussed separately. Market formation theories rooted in scientific and technical studies provide information on the analytical method to pay attention to the work of realizing markets, the role of computer devices in market formation and the conditional and conditional aspects of markets. This analysis shows that renting families in an active class is a practical achievement. However, a broader framework rooted in the political economy is needed to address the broader meaning of the working class in terms of power, politics and the dynamics of capital accumulation. The article focuses in particular on the historical and geographical events that make it possible to invent a large-scale SFR market, the work of state and capital market players to reformulate single-family homes restored as rental properties, and the role of accounting practices in this process, and the strategies of issuers and credit rating agencies to develop a new asset class for institutional investors. The working-class points to the fundamental role for housing in the ideology of capital, and talks about new implications of financial role players and domestic life, as financial accumulation adapts to the context after the crisis. In addition to the financial financing of housing after the crisis, the article also shows how economic geographers can carefully integrate the theoretical perspectives to critically examine the conditions of market formation and the social, spatial and political consequences of markets.
