Too late to moan and groan about that. The old industries that made the Great Lakes Region great (automobile parts, steel, textiles, food processing, chemicals, etc) will probably never go away entirely but will never be as strong as they were before 1970. Right now, cities like Cleveland need to find a way to attract any solid business and wealth investment.

You say this as if it was a choice.

*have

And it's not like the mayor one day just said "We've decided to deindustrialize." It's such a complex and multifaceted occurrence.

The city didn't deindustrialize itself. The corporations did.

And they’ve tried that with no success. I’ll tell you one thing shifting to a knowledge economy is not the answer.

I think our future can still be manufacturing, but we have to find a way to be price competitive with emerging markets. We should look at replicating the German model, where smaller manufacturing firms are extremely specialized, and can export high end or unique products around the world. Arcelor Mittal, and others have already done this, with great success.

We need to continue to replicate that model, and we need more vocational programs that train workers to go into high skilled manufacturing jobs.

In practical terms, the vast majority of jobs do not truly require any higher education. The fact that employers require this is another issue. But almost everyone's job could be learned via other means, quite easily. This extends into even white collar territory as well. Employers will eventually realize how useless college is, I think.
