Why New York Has So Many Empty Storefronts - The Atlantic
As cities become more expensive to live in they become ghost towns, lacking diversity only to cater to giant storefronts who are the only ones willing to pay the exorbitant rent fees.

UK state should pay for housing, food, transport and internet, says report
‘Universal basic services’ costing about £42bn could be funded through higher taxes, say Jonathan Portes and academics //&! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43078920 - Report proposes £10,000 for everyone under 55 - Most state benefits would be cut under the scheme.
