A new kind of faceless landlord, unliveable cities, and an escalating crisis that affects us all. This is not gentrification, it’s a different kind of monster.

 

Housing prices are skyrocketing around the world. Incomes are not. Push follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she travels the globe, trying to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why. “I believe there’s a huge difference between housing as a commodity and gold as a commodity. Gold is not a human right, housing is,” says Leilani.
