MetroTrends had a lot cooking this week – offering new evidence and policy proposals on issues shaping access to opportunity in metro America:

  • Greg Mills reports on the alarming number of Americans who rely on alternative credit sources like pawn shops and pay-day loans.
  • Bob Lerman offers remedies for metros’ still-struggling housing market.
  • Kim Rueben argues that the recent federal deficit-cutting deal probably won’t worsen cities’ fiscal woes.

If you enjoy learning about the diversity of policy challenges facing our nation’s metros -- please pass our MetroTrends blog along to friends and colleagues. And come back next week!
