Point of Reference in Bloomberg Opinion Column

Fallows, Bloomberg Sioux Falls

In his October 2, 2018 column, Justin Fox discusses why Sioux Falls, SD, despite not following any traditional recipe for civic success, is booming. Its metro-area population has increased 13.5 percent since 2010 (and 68.8 percent since 1990), to 259,094.

Fox states:

“I am not the first to attempt to answer this question: James and Deborah Fallows devote the first chapter of their new book “Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America” to it, and if you want a detailed account complete with Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons (manufactured in Sioux Falls by Raven Industries Inc.), that’s where you really need to go.”
