Demographic impact of urban exodus

This was discussed in the Bay Area tech thread but what will be the impacts of mass migrations and exoduses on different urban areas' class and demographic structures.

I’m leaving the city, it’s going to hell in a hand basket, the browns and gays are moving in. I’m moving to the burbs with my WASP family ASAP.

Yeah, so are there any mods left in this forum? Or are they part of this same extreme right-wing racist, homophobic agenda?

Some trends will be opposite, even if there's an outflow. For example, if you don't like commuting you can live within walking distance of work. There might actually be an increase in downtown and mixed-use living.

Another trend, if telecommuting really become big, if trips to the office can be seldom/never: Live in a place you like. Your favorite "lifestyle" city, the small town back home, etc. Maybe you make a name for yourself in a more traditional environment for a while, but move back to Iowa pretty quickly.

Yeah but even then, there is a world of difference between living in NW Arkansas versus somewhere like Pine Bluff.

If Arkansas gained people leaving large cities from the coasts chances are they would move to places with amenities and services in arms reach.

And even then this has huge unintended consequences. If Silicon Valley engineers moved to Arkansas, they'd live in some nice private gated community with exclusive lake access and pay hardly any taxes. The people who prep their food and fix their appliances and pour the concrete foundations of their house are going to live in nasty trailer parks, their kids will go to shit rural schools, they'll pay more for transportation, and their quality of life will be severely degraded. Instead of improving equality by redistributing wealth out of the largest cities to a poorer region, it would increase it by furthering a race to the bottom
