This chapter describes Philadelphia’s journey over of the past half century from industrial powerhouse through decades of postindustrial struggles to the revitalizing—yet deeply divided—city of today. It discusses the financial challenges facing cities such as Philadelphia, the growing reliance on market-driven solutions to entrenched social problems, and how this reliance has reshaped local policies and politics.
