Making geopolitical connections to gentrification in the United States at Pacific Standard magazine.

Theme: Globalization and gentrification.

Subject Article: "Chinese Lead Way as Foreigners Step Up Purchases of U.S. Homes."

Other Links: 1. "Illusion of Local: Why Zoning for Greater Density Will Fail to Make Housing More Affordable."

Postscript: I'm interested to know if the EB-5 investment visa helped pave the way for non-visa related real estate investment. Betting geographer David Ley could tell me, "Transnational Networks of Business Immigrants Between East Asia and British Columbia."
