With Another $3.5M Sale, Investors Double Down on South Shore Real Estate

From DNA Info...
With Another $3.5M Sale, Investors Double Down on South Shore Real Estate: A group of Florida-based investors has now invested $13 million in the South Shore rental market.... 
....out-of-state investors have now purchased approximately 65 percent of the properties sold in South Shore in the past year.
Get rid of the gangs and crime and South Shore would thrive. Some of the best views of Chicago can be had from the classic apartment buildings accross form Jackson Park along 67th street, while excellent transportation to the loop from Metra's (Illinois Central) trains on 71st. Someone sees the opportunities.

Big Banks, Big Medicine, and Bernie Sanders

Strange Sanders calls for breaking up Big Banks (into how many Small Banks) yet wants a single payer Healthcare system which would need to be a really Big Payer to sort out the thousands of Medical Interventions into what will be paid and what won't.  

Why bigness works for one industry and not another a curious question.  Seems a real Socialist would want to Nationalize Banks as indeed they once did as Ruth Coniff writes...

In one of the many historic excerpts from the forthcoming 100th anniversary issue of The Progressive magazine, Socialist Norman Thomas scoffs at Republican accusations that FDR is a "socialist." No socialist, Thomas explains, would stage a short-term government takeover of the banks, only to return them once they were solvent to the same Wall Street millionaires who broke them in the first place. - See more at: http://progressive.org/mag/rc031009.html#sthash.2BBFuWZi.dpuf

Why big works in one Industry and not another worth asking the Senator.
