Detroit again, Richard Florida and Pittsburgh
Take a listen to: It's Time For The Post-Automotive Era
and as bad as it is for Detroit these days, the recent news that GM is planning on shuttering all of its plants for 9 weeks this summer (I think that is the news) means its already high unemployment is going to shoot up. And like Pittsburgh 25 years ago, that Detroit unemployment rate is high despite the migration of workers I suspect is already taking place. If they were remaining in place, that regional unemployment rate could be even higher.
