Re: The American City is Dying
Right. Come take a look at San Francisco. Cranes and construction every where. Bidding wars for apartments and condos, bidding wars for high tech employees. Unemployment rate a little over 6%, 0% for anyone with any sort of marketable skill.

Problem for San Francisco isn't lack of money. Its too much money, making it difficult to afford even with a high paying easily obtainable job.

yes because silicone valley is nearby and supporting san francisco. same with new york city it is supported by wall street, but cities such as detroit had the car industry until the unions killed it with unsupportable contracts.
 Quoting: davvi



EXACTLY ...

The "apparent" wealth of San Francisco is NOT of it's own making, it is DERIVED FROM BEING CLOSE TO SILICON VALLEY
with that area's high concentration of new technology (computer, software AND biotech) generation.

WITHOUT Silicon Valley being nearby San Francisco would be having a tough time since it is NOT a transportation hub, has no land to allow for manufacturing, is NOT a corporate headquarters city (excluding high tech and finance) and it's finance functions (banking and insurance) are slowly but steadily being downgraded to not just a second rate city, but a third rate city (it used to be #3 in the US in those arenas after NYC and Chicago, but now it has been surpassed by not just by Boston and LA but also by Charlotte and Columbus).

i am surprised that the state of california has not taxed silicone valley into oblivion as they have almost every other money maker for the state.

even hollywood shoots on location outside of california.

Good Davi. You must try to forgive the people that just try to find blame, as if that will make the problem less severe or make it go away. Keep up your good work.

But isn't that just finding blame?

Blaming leftists of all colors and creeds isn't going to make the problem less severe or go away. naughty

perhaps you and i have different definition of the word "responsiblity"? if you call highlighting the failed policies of the left and define that as "blame" then how will we ever solve problems?
