An article published in several smaller Bay Area newspapers about gentrification in Oakland and the role of one real estate agent in the process. This guy markets the heck out of West Oakland (zip code 94607). Money makes change happen.

I think when people talk about the california exodus they mean domestic migration. Overall the state is growing but that is due to foreign immigration.

How a great American migration to California reversed itself

Some hard data from the State of California website (my bold) E-6. Population Estimates, Current - California Department of Finance
California’s population grew just under one percent between July 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015 to total 39.1 million persons. This represents an increase of 346,000 residents during the last fiscal year. The current percentage increase of 0.9 continues the moderate growth that California has experienced for the past several years.
Natural increase (births minus deaths) remains the primary source of the state’s growth. The natural increase of 262,000 is comprised of approximately 507,000 births minus 245,000 deaths. Births and deaths increased from the previous fiscal year. Net migration added 84,000 residents. Net migration includes all legal and unauthorized foreign immigrants, residents who left the state to live abroad, and the balance of hundreds of thousands of people moving to and from California from within the United States. The state gained about 145,000 net foreign immigrants last year.
Since the national census on April 1, 2010, the state has grown by 1,817,000 persons.

She complained that she can't afford to live where she thinks she deserves to live, so her solution is to vote for someone who she thinks will "fix" the problem...the problem being that she's a writer who teaches yoga that can't afford an expensive neighborhood.

Thanks all for an interesting discussion.


I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
