It's called a rentier economy. Thank you for pointing out that this is all about extraction, and it is now part of our everyday lives. It's really sick when it comes to basic human needs like housing, but governments all over the world have been captured, bought, suborned by oligarchs. Many good suggestions in your piece, particularly about Airbnb.
