Review of Push (2019)

Moving picture, 92 minutes

Seen in 2020.

The effects of financial abstractions on global urban real-estate markets as observed by Leilani Farha and explained chiefly by Saskia Sassen. Housing prices go up and neighbourhoods in central London sit silent and empty, because that way they’re easier to trade.

Overly focused on the personal experience of random people. The proposed explanatory model is not bad, but it almost assumes you’ve read something like When Corporations Rule the World (1995).
