Well since so many people are moving away and only the rich and welfare people can afford to live here (according to so many threads!) maybe we should just consider becoming America's First Resort for REAL?

What if we continue to encourage sale of big estates to the wealthy, raise prices on all our houses, only admit ivy league applicants to our colleges, and continue to work on only vacation infrastructure and high class restaurants? I see major resorts with multiple golf courses built on vacant land. Let's turn the I195 land into a really high class shopping mall with only top flight stores like in Beverly Hills.

We can establish entry points on all the roads and turn away anyone without sufficient net worth. We could become Monaco in the US- we're a good size for it! What do you say- are you with me?

Well, we may need a few lower class types for servants- the rest can move down south.

Please don't turn this place into Florida....all they have left is the wealthy, the lower middle class, and immigrants.

Rhode Island still has a bit of hope for an upper middle class. The median income for a family of four is around 85K. You don't find that many places down South.

Oh no, no, no. I'm talking wealthy only with maybe a small working class. You know, like Monaco??
Monaco boasts the world's highest GDP per capita at $132,571 and income per capita at $183,150. It also has the lowest unemployment rate at 0%, with over 48,000 workers who commute from France and Italy each day.
We can become really squeaky clean. Our workers could maybe commute in from Massachusetts. It would be beautiful....
