Chicago At The Tipping Point

“There should be no doubt that I predict tough times ahead for the city. But it’s not just me who harbors such suspicion. Even the Chicago FOX affiliate, Channel 32 News, is running a series called ‘Chicago at the Tipping Point’ these days.”

Survival And Prosperity, July 24, 2013

FOX 32 News in Chicago has been pretty busy with their “Chicago at the Tipping Point” project since I wrote the above. What is it? Political Editor Mike Flannery wrote on their website back on May 30:

FOX 32 News is starting a new series: “Chicago at the Tipping Point.”

We know — as you do — that Chicago is at a critical point, where things can either get better, or much worse. We want to know what you think about which way things will go.

Joblessness and violent drug gangs? Lousy schools and families fleeing? We’ll be looking at those connections in our city…

Recently, I happened to catch a series special entitled “Special Report: Jobs And The Economy.” Released at the end of November and hosted by Flannery and former FOX 32 News anchorwoman Robin Robinson, this production further confirmed for me that Chicago faces some major economic headwinds going forward, potentially making the city’s financial position even more precarious than it already is:

The special is worth checking out when you can spare 33 minutes and change.

In the meantime, for more information about the “Chicago at the Tipping Point” project, visit the FOX 32 News site here.
