For a possible scenario regarding where this is heading, take a look at Paris. A freakishly expensive inner city surrounded by squalid "banliues". An added problem to the poor being pushed to the suburbs is the "out of sight, out of mind" syndrome.

Robert David Sullivan

Maybe urban planners should take advantage of anti-French animosity among American conservatives. "Keep our major cities affordable, or we'll end up like Paris!"

Gabrielle Gurley

Chris is right with this caveat: The northern and eastern suburbs of Paris tend to be the poorer areas. The wealthy tend to migrate to towns west and south of the city.
