Mayors losing people and control of their cities
https://quillette.com/2019/11/27/mayors-...the-world/

Worth a read of the whole article on the flight from cities and even the mega metropolitan areas.

"...In reality, the validity of the “back to the city” meme was never as pronounced as its boosters believed. And now it seems, if anything, to be reversing—first demographically, then economically—as workers and key industries seek more affordable and congenial environments. Furthermore, many elite urban centers are diverging, sometimes radically, from national norms which produces a political conundrum. As big city politics shift ever further to the left, particularly on climate and “social justice” issues, not only are they becoming toxic to the middle class, they are becoming places many avoid rather than models that invite imitation....

These elite cities, of course, still attract young people straight from college, but many don’t stay long. A new Brookings study shows that New York now suffers the largest net annual outmigration of post-college millennials (aged 25–34) of any metropolitan area—followed by Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Diego. Nearly half of all millennials in San Francisco described themselves as “likely” to leave the city by the Bay, a dramatic shift from a decade earlier.

Demographer Wendell Cox has noted that similar dispersive patterns can also be found in Europe. Since the 1970s, Europe’s suburbs have accounted for virtually all the growth in virtually every urban area, including Paris, Barcelona, Copenhagen, and Dublin. Zurich, a paragon of efficiency, has gone from 87 percent inner city to 68 percent suburban since 1950. Over the past three decades, across the continent’s largest 16 metropolitan areas, the suburbs and exurbs gained 8.2 million while the population overall declined in the cores....

Much the same pattern, with widening gaps between the top and the bottom of the social hierarchy, can be seen in Europe’s other leading cities, including Oslo, Amsterdam, Athens, Madrid, Oslo, Stockholm, and Vienna.

The emerging configuration of the new urban politics threatens many of the gains made over the past two decades. New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio and increasingly militant anti-police protesters are actively unraveling the tough, but effective policing policies that worked under both Rudy Giuliani and his successor, Michael Bloomberg. The erosion of civil society, along with the introduction of high taxes and regulation are, according to a Bloomberg News report, leading to the flight of billions in capital from the city to states such as Florida...."

The truly off the charts irony of the situation is that it's those in cities (the major polluters of our world) who are championing the environmental issues? As my rural brethren say, "That don't make no sense!"

Talk about the most ironic projection ever city dwellers are telling rural America that we don't get it?

You can't dream up this kind of delusion or find a more salient example of irony!

People are moving out of NM. In an attempt to keep young families from leaving, My Little Governor (Michelle Lujan Grisham) wants to offer free education, which will help build a stronger, smarter workforce. Or so the gnome says.

WHAT? Well Laugh Out Loud Big Time. As it is NM is one of the poorest states in the nation right now and she wants to offer free education? Hey, Crimson I know that Enemas U. isn't known as a great learning institution but I think you already know who will pay for this...experiment.

I tell you, leave the Methheads and come to the Land Of Sanity, better known as Texas.

She wants to use oil money to pay for it. $55-65 million dollars a year.

Concerns raised by local politicians are how will it be paid for in the lean years?

Will universities raise tuition as they did with the lottery scholarship? (the scholarship is used to help pay for NM student's tuition after the first semester. Money came from NM Lottery)

Will people continue to leave NM after taking advantage of the free tuition?


Graduates are going to go where the jobs are. They are not going to stick around here and hope that they appear. Well...some might. More jobs are not going to appear because there are more people with a degree.

Also the high school students like free tuition, they just don't like that it's paid for by oil money.
