Ultra-Liberal Policies Leave Cities Struggling to Recover Post-Pandemic

In a post-pandemic world, some American cities are struggling to recover, with San Francisco, St. Louis, and Portland taking the brunt of the impact. As crime rates soar and homelessness continues to be an issue, these once bustling downtown areas have turned into ghost towns. Researchers tracking smartphone use across 63 cities found that San Francisco has lost almost 70% of its downtown activity, while Salt Lake City, with stricter policies on drugs and homelessness, has seen a 139% increase in cell phone activity since before the pandemic.

The data suggests that the soft-on-crime policies adopted by ultra-liberal cities have led to increased lawlessness and social problems, driving away residents and businesses alike. In contrast, cities that have not defunded the police and have maintained stricter policies on drugs and homelessness are experiencing a resurgence in their downtown areas. The study indicates that cities must reevaluate their policies if they hope to survive economically in the long run.

As the debate continues, some argue that cities with higher crime rates and lower foot traffic will require a federal bailout to address their budget shortfalls. It remains to be seen whether these cities can recover and learn from the lessons of the pandemic, or if they will continue on a path of decline. Ultimately, the future of these urban areas hinges on the decisions made by policymakers and their willingness to adapt to a changing landscape.
