I'm not sure if this is more under the economics forum or not but I put it here anyways, but I was thinking that in the future I have a good feeling that the economy will pick up and since this is the first time we've had both a good economy AND a strong movement to move back into the city and become a more transit oriented society a lot of our inner cities are going to grow and be able to accomadate the needs of a growing urban middle class. So what do you think??

The will be built on human scale and create a much better sense of place. Ending the scourge and blight of sprawl will go a long way to making our cities more beautiful.

More beautiful meaning more middle class people and less of those nasty working class people with their non ironic Carhartt work clothing, American cars and pickups and Catholic religion.

I think you see quite the opposite ;at least those who can move. What has happened more and more is people continuing the move out of the cities started after WWII and has picked up speed. Its the return of people who only moved there because of jobs caused by limited transport and energy in more rural areas. With boomers being such a large number and them retiring in coming year employment consideration will free many to move whose jobs held them before. Demographic of economic power has been shifting for decades now.

Prejudice is alive and well in Ireland.

There is no such thing as an "urban" middle class. In the city, you are either rich or poor. The "middle" class resides in the suburbs like they always have and will for decades - the world over.
