Cities that boomed before the sleep South seen as too hot for Corporate America to ha e non-air-conditioned manufacturing back in-the-day.

Went thru
- their hyper booms a few times and appreciating prices.
- the era of Unions causing midde-class wages to rise and hoysing booms resulted.
- the great from-the-south migrations some blame for the problems...
- problems of cities deained to the suburbs including tax base.
- white-flight took retail also.
- downtowns were bled and declined.

- then the migration of manufacturing to Asia.
- today lower Corporate investment in fear of Unions and lowered taxes as incentives are less up North.
- migrations from rural to cities.

Chicago was once the fastest growing city in the world and in all history. It still was booming in the crime of the Al Capone era.

California and LA boomed for ALL the 20th century. Most of the 20th century. Housing continually rising faster than the rest of the US by demand.

The sunbelt South stayed cheap as 70s thru 90s began the migration and boom and Corporate America found cheap land and state provided incentives in tax breaks. It is less now.

In past era... The North did not steal industry from the South. People were who migrated.

- once cheap metros fast rising.
- infrastructure needs rising.
- oldest expressways in need of rebuilding as rhe North had to do by the 90s and still past their life then.
BIDDING WARS fast rising cost and therefore TAX assessment s.

Some states the STATE TAX DEBT FAST RISING to keep up with the North.

At least as long as boom migrations last? Taxes coming will rise. That may not last forever. Always a new area cheaper to lure Corporate America.

RIGHT TO WORK STATES main intent is PREVENT UNIONIZATION and hugely...the fear of any for relocating corporations.

Texas Real Time Dept Clock in a BOOMING-EST STATE FAST RISING IN DEBT....


Ohio Real Time Debt Clock ( "lot lower" then mighty booming red Texas per person debt)


Indiana Real Time Debt Clock ( "lot lower" then mighty booming Texas)


Pennsylvania State Clock (my home state lower then Texas)


California Real Time Debt Clock.


Illinois Real Time Debt Clock (you remember IL....)


New York Real Time Debt Clock. (the highest state)


YOU CAN DO ALL THE STATES AND NATION. Some might surprise. Some won't.
