Should those investing in London’s pollution hot spots worry?
This article is from the Exponential Investor (who are sending me their emails ever since I read one of their online articles warning property investors not to invest in luxury high rises at Nine Elms on the Southbank). This article points out that air pollution doesn’t kill indiscriminately but hits disproportionally hard those who traditionally live in the most polluted areas around Central London. By inverting this observation it could be said that by driving these populations out of London through ‘regeneration’ their place in the pollution deaths statistics will increasingly be taken by the super-rich instead. Irony or what?
