The one good thing in 2020 was suddenly cheap rent in Manhattan and San Francisco — but the bill could be up for cities soon

Over 100,000 Manhattan residents left amid the pandemic — five times the city's loss in a typical year. Grant Faint/Getty Images Rents in both Manhattan and San Francisco, the two most expensive cities in the US, have been plummeting amid the pandemic. It's a sign of mass outbound migration. Tens of thousands of residents have left cities for greener pastures, with "no incentive to return," according to Miller Samuel's CEO. This trend has been happening for years, according to experts....

Affirmative action is on the ballot in California. The split between me and my Korean parents shows how big the generational divide on the issue is among Asian Americans.

Reuters California voters are deciding on the reinstatement of affirmative action as they cast their ballots on Proposition 16. A majority of Asian-Americans support Prop. 16, despite outspoken dissent by a few prominent Asian-American groups. Asian-American students, incorrectly lumped together as a monolith, must grapple with the model minority myth and proven admissions discrimination. In reality, Asian-Americans are the most divided economic racial group in America, with widely varyi...

How would Prop. 15 impact California’s housing crisis?

By Matt Levin | Calmatters When Californians approved Proposition 13 in 1978, critics of the landmark ballot measure say voters did not foresee many of the unintended consequences of capping property taxes on both residential and commercial land: lower school funding, cash-strapped cities, major corporate tax benefits. Forty-two years later, Californians are about to vote on Proposition 15, which proponents say will solve many of those problems by raising taxes on commercial properties. But ...

Shortly before her death in 1965, one of the New Deal’s most famous photographers, Dorothea Lange, spoke at UC Berkeley. “Someone showed me photos of migrant farmworkers they had just taken,” she said. “They look just like what I made in the ‘30s.” We can see the same conditions Lange documented almost 60 years later, from the poverty of the Depression to the internment and demonization of immigrants. Only the clothing and the architecture has changed. “Her work could not be more relevant to w...

Healthcare groups dive into property tax ballot fight, eyeing public health money

By Angela Hart | Kaiser Health News A November ballot initiative to raise property taxes on big-business owners in California is drawing unconventional political support from healthcare power players and public health leaders.

The initiative would change California’s property tax system to tax some commercial properties...

There’s a housing crisis, and Abodu wants to solve it fast with quality backyard homes

Housing prices have soared in many markets across the United States over the past decades as populations have grown, square footage has increased, and new unit construction has languished.

Few regions have been as hard hit by housing prices as the Bay Area, where the median price for an existing home last year averaged just shy of...

Eight months in, California is containing COVID-19 as other states spike. Here’s why.

Eight months into the coronavirus pandemic, California has become a rare case: a state that has contained the transmission of COVID-19 and isn’t experiencing another surge — yet, at least. Nationwide, daily infections are up one-quarter in the last two weeks, and the country just reported its most in a single day since July. Lightly populated North Dakota is seeing 85 new cases a day per 100,000 residents over the last two weeks. California? Ten new cases per 100,000, up just 2 percent in two we...
