If only the peasants would let us put them in 100 story ant farms so they could be more easily controlled...

Government barracks should do it - you’ll have to force the wealthy to live in them at gunpoint, but hey, it’s for the Greater Good.

Well, isn't that special.

I'm sure that Mr. Krugman will be the first to volunteer to move some of these "disadvantaged" folks right in next door to him.

Gotta agree that Atlanta is reaallly spread out.

Hardly compares with the NYC or LA metroplexes, though.

The purpose of Section 8 housing is to disperse the Eric Holder underclass into all the other strata of neighborhoods.

Either Section 8 is a good idea, or it's not.

You can't have it both ways Paul, even if you are schizophrenic.

Central planners like to think they have all the answers, yet they always fail.

So, let’s gentrify all the cities and push the poor out into the suburbs. Retake the cities, if you can stand it.

Yeah, it's sprawl's fault. /sarcasm.

All those people that moved to the townships caused Detroit to fubar itself with bad schools, high costs, bad services, and crime everywhere.

Poor is a CHOICE, Paul. You want to deprive them of their CHOICE, don’t you?

Sorry, Mr. Krugman, it won't work. The reason people left the dense warrens of the inner city was to get away from the crime, trash, and civic disorder. Giving the criminals and drug addicts more mobility will only push them farther away. The answer is to fix the problems in the culture, not to try to make them unavoidable.

Krugman gets it all wrong. An executive living in wealthy Lower Merion Township in the Philly burbs has much more in common with a contemporary in Singapore, Frankfurt or Dubai than he does with minimum-wage schmoos living just five miles away from him in West Philly.

LOL, "urban sprawl" makes it difficult for the elites to use the threat of black violence to threaten whitey.

I'm just out of reach of the ATL thugs.

The left actually does have a plan to solve some of this. They want to build multi-modal transportation corridors that link population centers, moving people out of the dying inner cities to suburban hubs for the jobs and take them back to their homes at night. The problem is that once they get out of the slums and find a job in the suburbs, they don’t want to go back to the city, either.

By the way, these multi-modal transportation corridors are called, “Gateways.” There are all kinds of “Gateways” and they all have a connection to the Agenda 21.

One wonders why manufacturing companies aren’t fighting each other for the chance to locate factories in the midst of this abundant, stranded labor pool.

This might explain it better . . .

In Atlanta, African-Americans are 54 percent of the population, but are responsible for 100 percent of homicide, 95 percent of rape, 94 percent of robbery, 84 percent of aggravated assault, and 93 percent of burglary. Source: APD Uniform Crime Reports, Apr 2011 to Apr 2012

Social mobility is low in both cities—meaning the poor are staying poor. Why?

Because social welfare programs are keeping the poor anchored to the government teat.

Exactly where the Progressives want them.

The poor have no reason to go where the jobs are they can stay in the neighborhoods where they grew up with their friends and the government will supply everything they need.

And the government also makes sure that there is a grave price to pay for leaving the plantation. If they get a job that does not pay enough to supply all of their needs but pays just a little too much they loose all of the benefits that they are currently getting.

These people are not total idiots. They will stay where they are and keep collecting their welfare checks and keep voting Democrat.
