My hope for writing on Rust Belt cities is not to solve every problem (or any problem, really) and it’s certainly not to hand out prescriptions to remedy the myriad issues that the region faces. The forces at play are complex, interconnected with people, local history, politics, and the world economy, and so long-established that there really isn’t one silver bullet that can be deployed.

What I would like more than anything is simply to start a conversation, to build community, to learn from others.
