Re:Another Greedy Landlord Destroys an Institution
Here is a situation that is, unfortunately, not at all uncommon.
A neighborhood is in the pits. It is very difficult to rent out storefronts. But a businessperson with a good idea moves into a store. And the idea works. And brings people to the neighborhood. The neighborhood becomes desirable. So the landlord of the original business hikes up the rents to the point where the original business has to leave.
So, the person who is responsible for the landlord's property going up in value gets kicked out by the landlord. On the other hand, the landlord is not getting the maximum profit out of his or her property.
In today's world, gratitude and loyalty is for chumps.
