Sinopsi

Why can’t we afford to live in our own cities? The high cost of housing and global investment funds push people to poverty, stripping them of a fundamental right. Activist Leilani Farha’s determination to report this situation reveals the perversity behind speculation. It is time to recognize that this is not a natural and inevitable development. It can change.

Housing has become one of the most urgent global problems, a fundamental human right that we are losing little by little. Increasingly, more activists and anonymous people like Leilani Farha, the charismatic protagonist and rapporteur of the UN, devote their time and energy to raise awareness with governments around the world so that they take urgent steps to reverse this global crisis. PUSH reveals the darkest secrets of the global network of real estate and urban property speculation and highlights how vultures fund investments in real estate assets are to a large extent to blame for the gentrification that neighborhoods in many cities are undergoing.
