Badger Lake Real Estate

As a real estate broker you realize that your fortunes are subject to the vacillating market for lakeside properties. Given the easy availability of cheap credit, prices for mortgages are low and real estate prices are high. While you are satisfied with your commission level, your colleagues in the mortgage broker business are making a killing. Despite local environmental degradation—rising lake temperatures, extinction of native grasses, and the largest dead zone of any lake in the world—property values on the Lake Erie shoreline continue to skyrocket. You suspect the market of a certain irrationality. What would you like to do?

About the Red Hook Journal

Tirdad Zolghadr

Red Hook Journal addresses a wide range of issues, but it is ultimately driven by key preoccupations of CCS Bard, its host institution: What are distinctive features inherent to the curating of contemporary art? Are there terminologies, exhibition histories, political stakes, and professional mythologies that set curators apart? Red Hook Journal subscribes to the working assumption that this is indeed the case, and further, that curatorial conventions and prerogatives need to be rendered more tangible and contestable, rather than ever more diffident and hazy. That said, the journal occasionally offers a platform to dissenting opinions.
