what if they are not leaving?
Truth is there is nothing new, or at least nothing unexpected in that trend. Sadly, a few years ago it took Rotstein to explain my thoughts more clearly than I typically do.
For the moment at least, can we declare a moratorium on everyone still here bemoaning the idea that everyone else is fleeing the region. Long before the inflows and outflows converged as much as they have recently I explained that the population trends do not show that young people are fleeing Pittsburgh as most everyone believes in one form or another. If I made that argument 7 years ago??
