The US is something different to the overseas rich than it is to us. They see us as the most stable country. A country oriented totally for the rich. It props up banks, and makes it so they can do no wrong.
Look at how China had a huge influx of FDI after the 1989 crackdown. That was because they cracked down on the democracy demonstrators. Its the opposite of what we would do but rich people are not like the rest of us.
In some areas prices are being bought up by foreign investors who buy houses and then just keep them vacant as an investment- sort of escape hatch if the shit hits the fan where they are living now. In the Bay Area they call them “ghost houses”. There are a lot of really rich people overseas and the price of a house here in the US doesn’t seem high to them compared to the knowlege that their property will be protected here. They dont rent them out because its not worth the trouble to them.
We urgently need to figure out a way to restore democracy. We dont realize it but we’re losing rights right and left to subtle behind the scenes changes, both parties are waging a quiet war on the very idea of a middle class and jobs with decent pay. They feel that labor is worth less so they should pay a lot less.
