There is a further complication in that, for all US states without a growing supercity, should the state be trying to help its biggest city, like Detroit or maybe even Chicago, or help with smaller rural areas.

This is also the case in many small European countries like my own Slovakia with Bratislava, and the Czech Republic with Prague. Given the current advantages of supercities, gov't money to help the big cities get bigger is likely to be more efficient at helping more people increase their incomes more.

Yet helping second tier cities more will distribute slightly less total growth but to a wider group of people.


Along with house costs, another big reason for less migration is restrictive state licensing, like of hair cutters.


Tiny typo: would instead of were: "necessary and were in fact be at a disadvantage"
