Senior writer Allison Linn writes: "For a cautionary tale, communities hard-hit by the current recession don’t have to look much further than Youngstown, Ohio. Like many other manufacturing-dependent cities struggling in this recession, Youngstown’s economy was once booming mainly because of the success of one dominant industry. And also like those cities, Youngstown saw its fortunes fall fast and hard when that industry suddenly bottomed out, leaving many of its residents jobless and unsure what to do next."
