With the ever increasing wealth gap (I can’t remember when I last went two weeks without reading something about how much of the world the one percenters now own), gentrification is now a growingly hot social issue in cities all over the developed world.
And Australia is no exception to this phenomenon as you can see here and here, just for example.
So, where will this trend take us down the road if things continue like this? What will eventually happen if the rich continue buying the poor away?
Well, the fellas over at Perez Bros together with Corduroy Media recently made a comedic short, “Universal Gentrification” which takes a humorous approach to this serious issue, imagining what would happen if aliens decided to gentrify planet Earth. Check it out below.
