Shrinking City Myths

Late Sunday night musings for Pacific Standard.

Theme: Making better sense of Rust Belt demography.

Subject Article: "Rust-Belt Reaches for Immigrant Tide."

Other Links: 1. "Mayor of Rust."
2. "Braddock."

Postscript: Shrinking cities in an age of global aging demographics should focus on quality instead of quantity. The obsession with population numbers is an artifact of another era, a dying mesofact.
