White Flight From Suburbia To Cities

The Brookings Institution confirms cities' growth at the expense of suburbia.

Former Milwaukee Mayor John Norquist, now the CEO at the Congress for the New Urbanism, has been talking about this for years; cities have cultural advantages that suburbs cannot provide.

One form is not for everyone, obviously, though government policy - - highway building, mortgage and interest deductions, public bonding and tax programs, and more - - tilted the playing field towards the suburbs.

Not it looks like the market, and individual choice, are speaking loudly.
