China’s largest cities are so overpriced that migrant workers are going back to the rice paddies – and I predict urban unrest in the years ahead from the younger migrant workers who don’t know how to farm or want to go back. There’s at least 150 million of that group.

In San Francisco, you have people living in cars and taking showers at the office, teachers having to live in dormitories and people renting out single rooms in houses.

In Vancouver, you have a 15% foreign buyer tax plus 12% to 16% on top of that if you flip within one to two years. Prices dropped at first but are now shooting to new highs despite that aggressive policy. You also have 400-foot micro studios with a fold-down bed for $400,000 or more.

In China, they have 66 square feet “closet” apartments. That’s the size of my 7’ X 10” carpet in my home office. A bed, a toilet and sink, a small drawer and closet… basically a jail cell.

In L.A., and more cities like San Francisco and Cleveland, there are increasing renter riots, while rents have just crashed 15% in Chicago.

This just can’t keep going on for much longer.

Harry Dent
Harry S. Dent Jr. studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of his chosen profession that he turned his back on it.

Since then, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN/Fox News. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni.
