Not at all. It's a huge problem and I don't think I said anything that would indicate otherwise.

I just hate shitty, sensational journalism posing as analysis.

And for the record - to your initial post - the term "Income sorting" isn't "setting the trend". It's acknowledging it.

The premise is wrong on its face. People aren't "sorting" and poorer people aren't moving to Detroit or Cleveland, as the article suggests. One merely needs to look at the long term population trends in those cities to know that.

People go where opportunity lies. As Brewster points out, the industries in dynamic, coastal cities are growing and tend to demand a highly educated workforce. If there is any "sorting" going on, I'd argue it's driven by education. People from areas in decline with high levels of education are more easily able to seek better opportunities elsewhere. The less educated often get left behind.

Expensive housing is a function of this growth, not an additional problem (as the article argues.)


Gheez Sleez what a sad apologist you are for the income divide USA is experiencing.

This is not really hard to parse. Great port cities have always been the most vibrant metropolises on earth, From Rio to Montreal to St Petersburg to Shanghai. There's far fewer great cities inland, and far fewer still if you eliminate river ports like Paris or Berlin.

Inland you find communities built around extraction and refining, whether it's corn or iron. Occasionally the elite of these cities have put serious money into making them livable places with art and culture, like Rochester or Pittsburgh. But mostly they're a place for young, educated people to leave.

The story of why we won't let builders build enough to equalize the housing market is another subject previously discussed.

I myself have always lived near the ocean (even in the old country) and cannot imagine myself living, in, say, PA
