45. I am an architect and urban planner, and I have to tell you....
Edited on Thu Jun-26-08 10:30 PM by kevin881
...many of us have seen this situation coming for years. No doubt that the suburbs "off the grid" of major cities (those without public transport leading into the metropolitan areas), are screwed. Rural areas might actually be better off, as "mom and pop" stores will pop up again and Wall Marts located off the interstate will not be as cheap if you have to travel 40 miles to them.

That said, in the rural lifestyle, people will be confined to the very small towns that they live in, without much possibility to travel to bigger towns or bigger cities very much at all.
