Being that everyone wants to live in about 10 cities and housing prices are insane and I do not own a beachfront mansion despite clearly deserving it, I had a question. Please answer the poll in the interests of science.

Is this thread about moving to a "best place" like overcrowded Austin, burt?

If we conceive of capitalism as AI itself, it arguably already does.

Let the markets decide. The "undesirable" places descend into crime and vacancy, then they become more affordable, then people move there and reinvigorate the economy and culture. See Spokane, Detroit, Galveston, St Louis, Lowell...

As a newly minted member of the gentry, I'm cool with gentrification and letting the market decide. I just wish it could create some art and architecture that wasn't a soulless blight on the landscape.

I'm afraid that would reset the poll, but I have noted your write-in.

I think the art can happen, but not really the architecture. That shit is expensive.
