Million Dollar Shack: Trapped in Silicon Valley’s Housing Bubble — 4 Comments

  1. Here are some videos about folks who left the sysstem and are living in rv’s and cars and vans.

    very empowering to watch these and dream of the possibilities!

    That final comment in the Million Dollar Shack film, the ‘wealthy real estate agent’ saying folks who grew up there and others who have ‘less education’ than the techies and being priced out of the area, “well they just need to work harder…blah blah blah.”

    such a blind lack of compassion and worship of the soon to be dead dollar…

    • Even 6-figure Google techies are being priced out now. It’s turning into a gambling atmosphere for the super rich, many of whom don’t live there. This is not sustainable.

  2. Search for house price charts online. The same type of runaway property speculation by millionaires and billionaires is also happening in other cities like Vancouver and London. It’s like a real life game of monopoly with no concern for people who live there. Even 6-figure income Google employees are having to move out.

    • Many of these “investors” then leave the homes empty!

      What a strange surreal life those folks have, completely cut off from their real true self.

      Yet, even where we live in rural Appalachia, there are “better off” folks who would rather leave homes empty than to have someone live in them.
