America's cities and regions are beginning to emerge from the worst recession in more than 75 years. The impacts from the macro-economic forces of recent years have been different in every city across the country. Why have some been able to sustain or even grow their local economies while others have experienced significant job loss, disappointing reductions in the tax revenues that enable the provision of public services, and unprecedented out-migration? And, what lessons can be learned from the cities and regions that fared well that can be transferred to other cities and their leaders?
