Population Loss Economics

See original/source content: Forbes Blog

I want just throw out some scattered thoughts about a topic that I think is very important, but not particularly well understood: population loss.
By population loss, I mean when a local economy sees a decline population. I find this an interesting topic because population loss has been a big factor in many areas of the country, and because the net economic effects of population loss are unclear and underdiscussed.
When a local economy experiences a negative economic shock, the local marginal productivity falls below marginal productivity in other areas, and population loss can result as people leave the area.
