This Is the Thing That Will Destroy Our Cities

Cities are engines of innovation and wealth creation for a healthy society -- but not when the vast majority of wealth accrues to people who already have it.

Today we discuss the Gini coefficient, the different ways income inequality affects US cities, and which cities are most and least affected.


I find CityNerd informative, entertaining and instructive.

I live in the Southwest, where we have endless must-have-a-car suburbs.

Neighborhoods vary from near-slums to McMansions.

This will not just destroy our cities. It will destroy the nation.

The Gini number is quite interesting, as are some of the cities that he highlighted.

Good article.

Comparisons of Gini scores between countries are... as expected...   jrSmiley_42_smiley_image.gif
