Can Your City Compete?

What do you do when your city is falling behind? 

Well, if you’re a newspaper, you do a major series laying out the issues and the case for change. 

The Cleveland Plain Dealer did it some years ago with a massive effort called “A Quiet Crisis“. 

And this week the St. Louis Post-Dispatch does something similar with a three-part series called “Can St. Louis Compete?” 

The issues discussed are familiar and relevant to any struggling “Rust Belt” type of place, from Buffalo to Birmingham, and thus relevant more broadly.
