Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) –- On today’s “Weird Wall Street,” Adam Johnson, Trish Regan and Matt Miller discuss bizarre stories in business. They speak on Bloomberg Television’s “Street Smart.” (Source: Bloomberg)

Adventures in brazil, you bought us a story about slum tourism.

There are some of the scenes.

Now there is a new five-star hotel company in south africa which has created a fake shantytown for its wealthy clients.

It is a little peculiar.

They can experience staying in a shanty within the safe environment of a private game reserve.

It is a unique accommodation to say the least.

It comes with an outdoor bathroom and there is a underfloor heating and wi-fi.

I signed -- i find this very uncomfortable because i find it insulting to the fact that there are so many people who do live in poverty.

I thought when i was there in brazil but it was strange they were having these tours but at least you could argue that people were seeing that poverty up close.

And becoming observant.

Where is this is just -- i find it gratuitous and very uncomfortable.

But in the same time i want to go to the game reserve and honked.

That's a separate issue.
