Ishwar Puri: We could learn from Pittsburgh

In the 1980s Pittsburgh's steel industry crumbled. That region lost 115,000 jobs. About 50,000 people left the city each year during the early part of that decade. Although the same decline occurred elsewhere, including in Hamilton, Pittsburgh has been much more resilient than its peer cities in finding a path forward. Its solutions offer lessons for job creation in Hamilton.
