THE COST OF LIVING – AFRICAN IN AMERICA NETWORK,

Improvisational silent short film analyzing the vice of the Los Angeles housing market in 2016 in contrast to property acquisition during the baby boomers generation. Is home ownership still affordable to children who were born in the 80s and 90s in major cities? With a tremendous amount of inflation and gentrification in major US cities the cost of living for a child born in the 80s or 90s has increased and driven most families out of their homes that were established by their grandparents, and what “The American” dream of home ownership was to their parents in contrast to their offspring; a bachelors degree from an accredited University can no longer guarantee home ownership “The American Dream”. One would ask themselves, with so many undergraduate young adults being pumped annually back into a system of labor that doesn’t value their education as it once did most are forced to continue their education and take on an enormous amount of debt, or enter the labor force with limited opportunity with “The Cost of Living” constantly rising! The average medium for a house in Los Angeles in the 90s was around 90,000 – 200,000. Today, the average home in Los Angeles is around 300,000 – 500,000. While the average undergraduate returning home from college is working on an annual salary between 20,000 – 30,000. Did the inflation in the housing market match the cost of living? – African in America Network
