Re: Depressing
It does sound depressing. Let's just hope NYC doesn't get to that point ever.

This infographic spells out what we can look forward to -- or, rather, fear -- when and if NYC falls over that cliff. The loss of services that are required to make large groups of citizens productive will cancel any benefits gained from the recent employment recovery, however small that's been.

Well, I was eager to share this infographic with the FC community as soon as I saw it, but now that we've put it up I'm just feeling depressed by it! I appreciate this visual representation, though I actually expect that the tax increases shown here are lower than what they'd actually be, because if all of those programs on the left have their funding cut, the city will likely need to raise taxes further to keep them afloat.
