Comments on: NYT editorial: “whistling past the deficit” Option ARMageddon Tue, 14 Oct 2014 13:06:34 +0000 hourly 1 By: fresno dan Tue, 17 Nov 2009 11:59:48 +0000 Now I’m really, really scared. When NEW YORK thinks you can’t just pluck all the money you want from the money tree, things must be getting tough.

The NY state population grew from 18.2 Mil to 19.0 mil from 1970 to 2000. That is absurdly low compared to America as a whole. And the population growth continues to be weak.

Immigrants flock to NYC as they always have. Subtract that out, and you see shocking outmigration to other states.

Places with negative population dynamics can spiral downward in a horrible way. Ask Detroit.
