Discussion: High Tech Revival of Pittsburgh

Last time we discussed the decline of manufacturing in America. Continuing with the theme, we'll compare the high tech revival of Pittsburgh and the continuing decline of Detroit.

Pittsburgh is having a comeback through technological innovation from Carnegie Mellon as well as new urbanism that draws talented people to urban centers. We'll discuss the pros and cons of such an approach, if similar approached will work for a city like Detroit or what does it say about the future development of other American cities.
