The Collapse Of Blue Cities: The Cost Of Liberalism Is Self-Destruction

EDITOR'S NOTES

Economist Stephen Moore’s latest findings are a sobering wake-up call. Major ‘blue’ cities in the US, like Seattle and Chicago, are in a dire state. Foot traffic, a lifeline for economic health, has nosedived. Moore attributes this alarming decline to a combination of rampant crime, oppressive taxes, and sheer administrative failure. These statistics are the death knell for the vibrancy these cities once boasted. As an economist, I see this as a clear indicator of a deep-rooted crisis. The question now is, can these urban centers reverse course, or are we witnessing their irreversible decline?

Study shows Seattle, Chicago, NYC, San Francisco foot traffic all down since pre-pandemic 2019
