You think that article says cities are deteriorating?

It seems to focus on the increase of poverty in suburbs, not urban areas. In fact, there was a mention that urban areas are getting too expensive, so lower income people are forced to move to the burbs, which is a reversal of the "American Dream".

I mean the title of the article is Suburbs and the New American Poverty afterall.

Did I miss something in there about urban areas deteriorating? Maybe a key quote from your own link might improve the line of sight.

Spacemonkey's argument is that the urban areas are growing increasingly poor. With poverty comes all those lovely things associated with poverty. I'm sure you don't need a description of that.

It’s not just Atlanta—across much of the country, poverty is increasingly a problem found in the suburbs. The number of poor in the suburbs surpassed the number of poor in the cities in the 2000s, and by 2011, almost 16.4 million suburban residents lived below the poverty line, according to Kneebone and Berube.

Oh, I see what you mean NAB.

Spacemonkey lives there, I'm sure he knows the difference. But terming people and areas as human landfills, imho, describes what he intends vividly.

I do note that many formerly shitty areas have had makeovers, but I don't think that's what he's talking about.

Totally unrelated, but I just spent the last two days posting at thepoliticalforums.com. Good f**k Christ. Now I remember why I post here constantly.

That's a great idea NAB. Spacemonkey or lnrw, can you grace us with a quote from this article that suggests urban areas in America are in decline? Looking forward to it. Thanks guys, appreciate all your hard work.

burbs will boom again when driverless cars come online. Property prices in major metros have become absurd, to the point where it's impossible for a well earning dual income household to buy property. Even elitist Dylan had to flee to a ghetto just to get on dat property "ladder"

Feel bad for all those morons paying 1.5m for some shitty two bed in Palo Alto. That's going to collapse, particularly when boomers realise they have committed an economic holocaust against the very people they expect to buy their grossly inflated property when they retire.
