I’m joined by a panel of experts
trying to answer this question:

What is the business
of gentrification?

Business of fashion?
Business of climate change?

Travel? Music? Dating?

Your future is our subject tonight.

Why do we see gentrification
as a dirty word?

Some people show up and they’re
not actually joining a community,

they’re imposing
their sense of community

on top of what’s
already been there.

Couples who meet online
marry two years faster on average.

We actually know now

that online dating does not
work out well for most people.

Let’s turn to our audience.

With the workforce changing,

is there a chance our educations
could become outdated?

Yeah.

Healthcare is a business.

We have to decide in this
country whether healthcare…

I don’t agree with it
but that’s the reality of this.

...is a public good or not.

That’s a really interesting point

and it actually leads us
on to our next stat.

In 2015, the number of
uninsured Americans dropped to 9%.

It’s about asking the question,
where does the money go?

The reality is you could have
any life that you want.

So take ownership of it.
