leave a comment »

We were surprised to hear the public radio economics show Marketplace was reporting on location from Baltimore today. Host Kai Ryssdal was in town to describe how the fallout from the financial crisis in affecting America’s cities beyond the power centers in New York and Washington. He says the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center ER is a good snapshot of the local economy.

The hospital serves a large population of former Bethlehem Steel and GM plant workers who had good industrial jobs ripped out from under them long before this current economic crisis.
