“Krone” on the ground – suspended: US faces acute homeless crisis

Date:

Eight in the morning in the “Little Saigon” neighborhood of San Francisco: A man gets up from his bed, which is stuffed with cardboard, reaches for a bottle of water and washes his face as much as possible. An emaciated woman wanders around, showing passers-by her empty storm lighter and asking for donations. A few miles away, Apple just unveiled its latest $1,000 luxury iPhone. Futuristic vehicles with sensors drive around on the road and collect data for the self-driving cars of the future.

A trip to California, you might think, given all the technological enticements of Silicon Valley, is a trip into the future. An expedition to the promised technological wonderland, where highly educated and no less well-paid engineers make their dreams come true. But our local inspection reveals a different, depressing side.
