Attracting and retaining skilled workers is the key to long-run growth—just ask the chamber of commerce in gritty Detroit, where there are homes for sale today for just $13,000. Meanwhile, once sooty Pittsburgh, New York, and London have reinvented themselves as high-end places where the footloose and educated want to live and work.
Lawrenceville appears in the Financial Times as a globally hip neighborhood. Data exist in support of Pittsburgh as a desirable destination for the "footloose and educated." Believe the hype.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms of the Burgh Diaspora.
