Coastal Towns In Cycle Of Poverty

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23549534

The Centre for Social Justice - set up by Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith - said some towns were suffering "severe social breakdown".

They were also becoming "dumping grounds" for vulnerable people such as children in care and ex-offenders.

This has been "further depressing the desirability of such areas and so perpetuating the cycle", it said.

The thing is, working across the UK, there are relatively few towns and cities I see that really look prosperous or the kind of place that one might enjoy living in. Even in an allegedly affluent provincial town the majority of employment is low-paid and does not match living costs without the usual fat top-up of tax-credits.

Instead of buying up bad debt from banksters in QE, debt-free money could have been spent into such areas. Even in depressed communities there are naturally innovative and resourceful types, but starved of any sort of access to resources they are hamstringed.
