This Week's Hot MetroTrends Topics

It’s definitely been hot in Washington this week.  If you’ve been vacationing somewhere cool (or distracted by deadlines at work), you might have missed some strong evidence-backed opinions on the MetroTrends blog:

  • Margaret Simms recommends changes in the mortgage interest deduction to help close the widening wealth gap between whites and minorities.
  • The latest data raise concerns about whether Chattanooga’s economic come-back can survive current economic woes.

If you enjoy reading our evidence-based opinions, please share MetroTrends with your friends and colleagues. And come back next week!
