said by IamGimli:True. So what should our society do? said by urbanriot:
The worst is when a large number of people rely on a single manufacturing plant and that plant goes under or pulls out of the area, so there's a town that's grown dependant on that plant, can't survive without it, yet nobody leaves.
You can't leave when you no longer have a source of income and the only thing that made anybody want to go to your community just closed.
A house isn't worth anything if there isn't someone willing to buy it.
