Fighting the Financial Lingo - A Pushback Dictionary
Oct 09, 2020 Season 1 Episode 15
WG Film

The language we use can clarify, empower, and even change minds. It can also create a club that shuts people out: if you speak the language, you’re in, otherwise, stay out! Financialization, markets, real estate, IPOs, assets, security …. The Filmmaker and The Advocate scratch their heads and stumble through the lingo they’ve come across in their journey to understand why people can’t afford to live in cities anymore. Defining the terms, Leilani and Fredrik expose how investor language bolsters the financialization of housing and erases the people who live there. But what happens when Fredrik and Leilani insert human rights language into the conversation?
