Everyone is going to be priced out of home sales. Investment firms will hold the majority of housing inventory forcing people to either pay more or rent from them. Builders will adjust their prices so that only large investment firms will be able to purchase them.

it doesn't work like that, typically large real estate holders need to pay below market in order to generate an annualized return - the only reason they can pay market or above market now is because the Fed Funds rate is 7bps and you are competing against other market rates that are less than 10bps

It is.

To me this is similar to medical care. A lot of people have issues with the fact that so many people get rich off of medical system. They believe that health care is a basic right and as such should be affordable, and no one should get rich off of it.

Same with housing. A lot of people feel that affordable housing is some sort of right, and that people making lots of money off of housing is a problem.

Here's the thing, I don't understand why an organization with the wealth and power of Blackrock has to go be an a-hole like this. Literal rent seeking reminds people you exist.

Simple. These people are evil and sinister.... they have very nefarious goals.

It's orchestrated collapse engineered by evil people. We need to see it as an existential struggle. But what are our weapons? How can we compete against all that money and power?

Oh we could beat them collectively but the problem is that there isn’t a fair playing field bc they blatantly engage in criminal behavior under the protection of the govt. the SEC refuses to do their fckg job bc many have multiple roles with the SEC and DTCC while also being portfolio managers for the crooked hedge funds. The fox guarding the henhouse!

You must know nothing about BlackRock. They are huge proponents of environmental change, black lives matter, and a laundry list of liberal/socialist causes

You must not know anything about these groups and how the people who virtue signal using these “causes” are doing so purely to impose their political will and control by manipulating useful idiots as yourself.

there is nothing nefarious about what Blackrock or the 100s of other similar investors are doing if you've ever rented a single family home, it is almost impossible to make a decent annual return without home price appreciation -- if you own several, you can lower your annual cost of maintenance, finding new tenants, evictions, though a real estate management company the real estate investors aren't doing this for the pure purpose of real estate appreciation - they are doing this for margin - monthly income over monthly cost...the only reason they can pay above market right now is because...mmkt returns are basically zero right now you have tons of investors that are buying these funds, your everyday mmkt fund, sovereign funds over seas, your companies pensions, state and municipal pensions this is just another form of investing

You have no idea what you’re talking about.... zilch

You're wrong about the climate change stuff. That's a true Wall Street grift

I think you misunderstood my point:

People who cry for socialism because of these corporate cronies play into their hands. They want an oligarchy while the idiots cry for socialism.

We are literally reaching the intersection of 1984 and Atlas shrugged.

Is it possible to design a central bank digital currency that does not require miners to perform random number generation puzzles? And could we have a central bank digital currency that doesn’t exacerbate the climate crisis and undermine environmental justice?

Would beg to differ, I have several friends involved in the industry

One buddy (multi millionaire) was part of a group that bought several neighborhoods after the financial crisis...they probably owned 5000+ homes, another buddy and his group own 500+ homes in Memphis, and lastly another couple buddies buy around 10 homes a year, once all are in good shape and occupied they flip them to a group out of London that buys tons of US homes and builds SIVs specifically for sovereign funds

I work in instutional Fixed income and cover many of the largest asset managers in the US

It's valid to question the use of electricity to mine Bitcoins. I'm not stating an opinion on this question, other than to say that it's not an inherently stupid line of inquiry.

Climate change may be real bc that’s pretty obvious the climate has changed since the beginning of time. As for the man made global warming claims.... complete and utter bs.

It is not the same as just investing as you claimed. They are not investing money like you and I would be. They are using darkpools to trade and short millions of synthetic shares to profit by manipulating the market.

A fair playing field for just average retail investors would equate to us being able to use counterfeit money to profit.

And not only that.... Unless you’re one of these hedge funds, you and I get margin calls. They bypass margin calls with taxpayer money as reverse repo loans instead of being liquidated like everyone else.

Oh look another infusion of cash from us taxpayers to avoid margin calls and help them make billions to buy up real estate and price us out.
