My research asks what kind of social, economic, and human capital resources enabled American manufacturing cities to escape severe socioeconomic decline following the exogenous macroeconomic shocks of the 1970s. I plan on expanding this to examine whether there exists a significant association between a lack of social, economic, and human capital resources, and risky political decisions and fiscal failures in contemporary American cities.
