Do investors not care about crackheads, food banks and methodone clinics?

Here's the thing about investors - they are people, and as such, they come in all different shapes, sizes, and colours. Some are small investors like your nice young couple, who just want to make decent a living and contribute to their community, some are heedless, absentee speculators interested solely in profit at the expense of city-building, some are corporate and responsible, but must balance their vision with institutional risk aversion, with just about everything in between.

Add to that the fact that the concentration of "crack heads, food banks, and methadone clinics" is largely a matter of perception, and smart investors base their decisions on realities, not fears and stereotypes, and you can begin to see why it doesn't make sense to generalize about what 'investors' may or may not care about.
