The Young And The Childless
In the latest pursuit of cool, mid-sized cities are "launching Web sites, organizing summits, staging arts and music festivals and investing in glitzy promotions" in efforts to lure young professionals....Cities spent decades dangling tax breaks and other financial sweeteners to attract big business. They poured billions of dollars into new stadiums, convention centers and aquariums. But their populations continued to shrink and to age....These cities now realize that they've done little to appeal to the labor force that will shape their economic future: educated 25- to 34-year-olds."
