As someone who grew up in a rural area in the Midwest, I do think a tremendous amount of value has been left on the table, both in raw economic potential and untapped human potential, from under-investment.

I grew up in the Midwest myself. It's a damn shame, and Middle America, and the good ideas, productivity, work ethic, honest people, and discipline that come with it are being starved in many ways.

My family and I got to watch as the manufacturing industry withered away.
