Economic Development


In March and April of 2017,  WE published a series of posts on the critical need to restore growth in Warren. Below are links to those posts along with a brief description of each:

The Big 6. Why a shrinking Warren makes everything more difficult.

Where did everyone go? Our population has been going down for more than 40 years.

Warren: The gray garden. The city is getting older — especially our workforce.

Back to school: Warren’s population is poorly educated, especially in key age groups.

2 + 2 = 3: Why workforce participation is so low in Warren.

Looking up at Mississippi: Household income in Warren is lower than in the poorest of states.

House poor.  Our homes, the most valuable asset most people have, are losing value.

A broke city government: We can’t expect government to pull us up alone.

A question for you: Was the argument convincingly made? Give us your opinion.
