Inner-cities continue to lag behind the rest of the U.S. in terms of economic performance – Inner-cities are defined as concentrations of economic distressed urban areas, measured by poverty rates, income levels, and unemployment.
Inner-city poverty is concentrated – inner-city areas account for the great majority of households living in poverty – with sixty-five percent of the poor in the 100 largest central cities living in the inner city.
Inner-cities need new, market-oriented strategies that will build on their strengths and engage the private sector.
It's good to talk.
