I had lunch today with my old pal Jason and we were talking about the fact that so many women in male-female relationships in NYC are now the primary breadwinners. I don’t find this surprising but I do find it problematic, economically. I told Jason that I strongly believe NYC has been really psychologically devastated by the 9/11 attacks, in ways that are not really economically quantifiable. The numbers don’t show the fact that business has slowed, that people are out of work, that productivity is down, that people are living in fear.
The US government should focus less on rebuilding monuments and more on helping the NYC economy build up its employed – and underemployed. Jason, who is going to business school in a few months, agreed.
