Laughable nonsense
6 July 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

One of the "questions" raised b this "documentary is: "how can investment firms be allowed to buy up distressed mortgages and make a profit renting those same properties." Really? Then who is supposed to buy distressed properties? People who can't invest in them to use their expertise and capital to repair and re-market them? Are those distressed vacant properties to just be left to crumble??

This film is just a litany of strawman and red herring arguments strung together.

When we talk about the right to housing this is *within* the right to adequate standard of living meaning the general notion is that the housing funding is passed within other social support programs.
