A Crisis not going to waste for DiBlasio

OK pic­ture this prob­lem, you are an ultra lib­eral, prac­ti­cally social­ist mayor of one of the largest cities in the world who has fol­lowed a mayor so rich that nobody on your side wanted to make demands of him for fear of chas­ing away his cus­tom or char­ity once he was out of office.

You have to please your base to the city starts to change, you go after the car­riage dri­vers for the envi­ron­men­tal­ists (or maybe for a devel­oper) the Squeegee men come back and you stop and frisk and crime starts to increase. Sens­ing the bad old times are back peo­ple who can afford it start to leave.

Well what do you do if you can’t keep peo­ple with money in your city? You get new peo­ple who are in a spot even worse:

Wealthy French Jews Are Flee­ing Anti-​Semitism and Bring­ing Their Money

A “fixer” named Marlen Kruzhkov has helped dozens of rich guys move their fam­i­lies — and over $1 bil­lion — to NYC

And com­pared to France, even NY is busi­ness friendly

For this Jew­ish pop­u­la­tion, there are two main options when it comes to mov­ing: the United States or Israel. While Israel feels more famil­iar to many of those seek­ing to migrate – it’s nearby and many already have Israeli pass­ports — Mr. Kruzhkov notes that their busi­nesses are often the key to deter­min­ing a location.

Israel is a small place, busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties are less, there is much more red tape.

The US is eas­ier; it’s a great place to do busi­ness, less red tape.” Nonethe­less, it is anti-​Semitism, not busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties, that is dri­ving the Jew­ish pop­u­la­tion out of France. “It’s no ques­tion, the dri­ving force is the anti-​Semitism, but the rea­son they are choos­ing the US is due to sound busi­ness reasons.”

Who thought that ram­pant french anti­semitism would pay off for the ultra lib­eral mayor of NY?

The prob­lem is will the sup­ply of wealthy Jews flee­ing for their lives to NY be suf­fi­cient to off­set effects of a full DeBla­sio term?

OK picture this problem, you are an ultra liberal, practically socialist mayor of one of the largest cities in the world who has followed a mayor so rich that nobody on your side wanted to make demands of him for fear of chasing away his custom or charity once he was out of office.

You have to please your base to the city starts to change, you go after the carriage drivers for the environmentalists (or maybe for a developer) the Squeegee men come back and you stop and frisk and crime starts to increase. Sensing the bad old times are back people who can afford it start to leave.

Well what do you do if you can’t keep people with money in your city? You get new people who are in a spot even worse:

Wealthy French Jews Are Fleeing Anti-Semitism and Bringing Their Money

A “fixer” named Marlen Kruzhkov has helped dozens of rich guys move their families — and over $1 billion — to NYC

And compared to France, even NY is business friendly

For this Jewish population, there are two main options when it comes to moving: the United States or Israel. While Israel feels more familiar to many of those seeking to migrate – it’s nearby and many already have Israeli passports — Mr. Kruzhkov notes that their businesses are often the key to determining a location.

“Israel is a small place, business opportunities are less, there is much more red tape.

The US is easier; it’s a great place to do business, less red tape.” Nonetheless, it is anti-Semitism, not business opportunities, that is driving the Jewish population out of France. “It’s no question, the driving force is the anti-Semitism, but the reason they are choosing the US is due to sound business reasons.”

Who thought that rampant french antisemitism would pay off for the ultra liberal mayor of NY?

The problem is will the supply of wealthy Jews fleeing for their lives to NY be sufficient to offset effects of a full DeBlasio term?
