In answer to the OP, yes and no. The monied class has always been in Edinburgh and has thrived since Thatcher. The bail out of the financial system showed they are bullet proof within the UK. Business as usual for them so that part of the soul of Edinburgh is the same. The part changing is the part made up of normal working people. Unless receiving a big inheritance, they are being forced out of the city. They are replaced by students, holiday lets, second homes and insecure accommodation for let. In this way Edinburgh has lost that part of its soul. Short of a housing price crash which I would welcome, the flight out of Edinburgh for teachers, nurses, office workers etc will continue.
