Landlords without faces. Apartments without renters. Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world. Incomes are not. PUSH sheds light on a new kind of landlord, our increasingly unlivable cities, and an escalating crisis that impacts us all.
Follow Leilani Farha, UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she travels the globe, speaking with Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, sociologist Saskia Sassen, and author Roberto Saviano in an effort to understand who’s being pushed out of the city and why. This is not gentrification, it’s a different kind of monster.
