Some new and potent myths about digital nomads have emerged in the past few weeks. I come to bury these myths, not to praise them.
Myth 1: Digital nomads price locals out of their communities
The most significant new complaint about digital nomads is that, as a group, they’re pricing locals out of their communities.
The example location is usually Mexico City. Mexicans are “fed up” with digital nomads, we’re told.
Take a closer look. Whenever numbers are trotted out as evidence — people, prices, etc. — they always lump digital nomads together with tourists to make their case against digital nomads, specifically.
