Pittsburgh Retains Young Talent

Financial Times has video about the Pittsburgh turnaround:

In the narrative of the American rust belt, Pittsburgh offers the opening monologue. In less than a decade, the city and surrounding region lost more than 150,000 manufacturing jobs, including nearly 70,000 in steel alone. But now, more than 30 years after the collapse of this former manufacturing titan, the city has emerged as one of the country's most dynamic and robust economies.

Emphasis added. The almost 4-minute clip isn't quite as glowing as that last sentence. If you are interested in a plugging the brain drain success story, then give the video a whirl. I feel nauseated.
