I must mention that the initial push to leave the cities after WW2

In America was saved up individual wealth, the chance to own a home with land, and the automobile. These people were leaving their ethnic neighborhoods and moving to ethnically-mixed new housing developments. In a way this prepared the way for the Civil Rights movement of the ’60s because it broke down a lot of ethnic segregation. White flight was a later stage of this phenomena.

Good video, never really thought about how infrastructure costs would go up like that. But alright suburbs suck, isn’t the whole appeal of the suburb to have more space for less money? I understand that people leaving cities for suburbs would hurt city budgets, but say you have a city like NYC where average rent prices are pretty high for the average earner. What’s the solution to keeping people in cities if rents aren’t affordable.

Right off the bat the percentage imperception (my own term) is strong here. Low percentage of poverty neighborhood growth in cities vs. High percentage in suburbs… so. The obvious issue here is cities do only have so much more percentage to go. San Francisco, for example can’t really increase poor areas when the housing is as expensive as it is. Minneapolis has certain areas that will always be upper class due to a beautiful view or a very nice nature walk close by. There is only so much percentage it can realistically grow. If a. Football team goes 13-3 one year there isn’t really a lot of room for improvement since a perfect season is nearly impossible but if it goes 2-14 it can improve 100% and still have a terrible season.
A suburb, similar to the tea with a bad season, has essentially limitless potential for increase I poverty since it is starting out with little to no poverty and has plenty of geography to morph into whatever.
I’ll keep watching.

My country (Canada) is technically worse. We seem to have 2770 km of road per 100k, and 45 km of expressway per 100k. In all fairness, we are very very spread out. Most people live in the east, but we still have the highways and farm roads stretching across the whole country. We also have many cottages and Northern communities that require long roads to reach. Our infrastructure is also crumbling.
