Falling Medium Incomes in Metropolitan Areas

The Brookings Institute has an interesting study,The State of Metropolitan America, which includes an interactive map. (Go to:http://www.brookings.edu/metro/StateOfMetroAmerica.aspxfor the full report.) The link title of this blog entry will direct you to a map portraying median incomes by urbanized area since 2000.In all cases, with a few exceptions--mainly the D.C. area--medium income has decreased in all Metropolitan Areas. Wealth is not being generated, so naturually a recovery which is based on increased consumer spending, will not be forthcoming soon.
