This talk I recently found is on finance capitalism and the phenomenon of vacant buildings (this is just one of a series of talks and references others that fits in with the themes of their show).

It’s clear that global finance is based on get rich quick schemes and property price based economics is anti-Human.

When it comes to Asset Urbanism people are utterly irrelevant, China currently has 50 million units of empty properties, never been lived in, Ghost Cities. They are monetised assets nothing more.

Madrid has a completely empty complex of high rise buildings the size of a city, completely void of Humans.

Rep of Ireland has Zombie Hotels, completely empty built in rural Ireland, built as investments and abandoned when the hedge funds dried up.

When people wake up and realise the property con, then the Human Race may have a chance of moving forward, until then we are fucked – we’re heading for dystopia
