America has been particularly unchanged throughout history, with economic reasons people steadily move westwards, then southwards. The irregular shape of this urbanization challenges America’s infrastructure. Pandemic made this shift obvious. Business and its human resources massively moved to a place like Buckeye, or the sunbelt state. So, the old industrial heartland like Youngstown in the midwest and north-east struggles too much to hold on to its citizens.
It leads to economic gap.
This case challenges America’s growth acceleration. Although between Buckeye and Youngstown it is clear that Youngstown will get deserted, revival of manufacturing can change the fate of the states anytime. The challenges will also determine the future shape of the American economy as a whole.
Buckeye, the most desired land, has constructional issues. New homes are pegged out alongside the highway, said The Economist. Middle-priced homes costs doubled in the past three years. The state’s sole obstacle could be the speed of construction work. The government has separated the land into massive zones which are later sold to the property developers. The developers attempt to build MPCS or Master Planned Communities.
The Howard Hughes Corporation, a real estate firm, plans to build the largest MPC for over 300.000 people. So far 5% space in Buckeye is already in the ongoing construction. Buckeye is an attractive place for builders, the size of it is almost 30 times larger than Manhattan. Gorgeous spots for vocational settings are plenty enough to satisfy the plan of real estate businesses.
Compared to many other business hubs in America, Buckeye is full of local enterprise. The place cannot trap people’s movement into traffic jams like Phoenix. So far, while going on with construction businesses, Buckeye continues to woo businesses to achieve its growth target.
To sum up, population and economic growth have shown a terrible gap. It is 135% versus 7%. What causes the gap could be geographical conditions. The south like Buckeye gets plenty of sun and space, but it lacks water. The north like Youngstown has water and industrial heft.
