Bright Flight: Affluent Leaving Suburbs, Moving to Cities


The Wall Street Journal reports on a Brookings Institution study on the State of Metropolitan America. Reversing decades of history and common perception, young, affluent Americans are moving into cities to raise their families while the poor and ethnic minorities are increasingly moving to the suburbs. In the last ten years suburban poverty has grown times faster than urban poverty. Brookings Institution and University of Michigan demographer Bill Frey summed up the report saying, "white flight to the suburbs is turning into ‘bright flight’ to cities."
