Wayne Winegarden – Free Cities Index

Our guest this week is PRI senior fellow Wayne Winegarden who discusses his new study “The Free Cities Index.”  Many of America’s cities have been on the decline for years, while other cities have thrived and attracted more and more Americans.  Wayne examined a multitude of variables – taxes, crime, schools – and ranked the 50 largest U.S. cities in terms of livability and growth.  Not surprisingly, the states that ranked the highest have seen increasing migration, while states near the bottom have seen population declines.  Unfortunately, many of California’s largest cities are ranked near the bottom.
