[URBAN NOTE] Five notes about cities: Canada, Japan, China

  • That the bottom 75% of income-earners in Canadian cities cannot afford an apartment in the major cities of the country is, regardless of the qualifications, bad news. This Yahoo Finance article goes into detail.
  • It is an exaggeration to talk about an exodus of young Canadians away from expensive centres. The Globe and Mail discusses.
  • Ozy suggests many young Japanese are fleeing the cities for the less stressful countryside.
  • The CNRS hosts this interview which contrasts and compares the developments of suburbs in Europe and in Japan.
  • The SCMP reports that a high proportion of Chinese cities are seeing population declines.
