Why has the Northeast recovered from deindustrialization better than the Midwest? New York, Philadelphia, and Boston have successfully shifted to a service based economy while Detroit, St Louis and Cleveland haven’t.

Correct. KEEPING SICK SICK ON PERMANENT DRUGS is great for the economy,
when you add Healthcare sector to GDP.
Various extremely expensive worthless procedures are great for the economy. Stuff like that.

>efficient capital allocation is bad for the economy
Passing printed money to your relative hedge funds is "efficient capital allocation"?
Who are you trying to jew here?

>"On 17 July Alexios III finally took action and led 17 divisions from the St. Romanus Gate, vastly outnumbering the crusaders. His courage failed, however, and the Byzantine army returned to the city without a fight. His courtiers demanded action, and Alexios III promised to fight. Instead, that night ( 17/18 July), Alexios III hid in the palace, and finally, with one of his daughters, Eirene, and as much treasure (1,000 pounds of gold) as he could collect, got into a boat and escaped to Debeltos in Thrace, leaving his wife and his other daughters behind."
The more I learn about this crusade, the more I understand why the latins snapped there, Barbarossa should've taken them out decades earlier for betraying christendom and allying with muddslimes.
Lmao, the medcuck emperor leaved his wife and daughters behind to be FRANKED.
The crusaders were constantly disgusted by the byzantine preference of diplomacy with Muslims instead of war.

I’m going to post this every day until you remember it

Why were major cities in the western world much more affordable for people with working-class wages in the 1970's and 80's than later on? In the 1990's, it seems like many of those cities exploded in price and never came back down. Why?

yeah it is far and away the main problem
less population
higher population makes everything cost more because of rising resource demands
>High taxes should drive down the price of housing as lower savings means fewer people can afford housing.
Doesn't matter as long as being a landlord and renting the property away is enough to cover the cost of taxes, rich people will just snowball and get richer.
If you want to fix the system you need to make property tax a function of how much land you already own, this way there is a mathematical point were buying more land and renting it to somebody isn't profitable anymore and rich folks cant just accumulate land ad infinitum.
And only citizens are eligable to purchase land, the system doesn't work if a hundred million chink investors drive up prices from outside the system.

Population in Germany has remained basically static in the last few decades, property prices exploded like everywhere else in the west regardless.
The house my parents sold like 15 years ago for 220k is currently listed for sale again for over 500k. And no, average german wages havent suddenly doubled in the last 15 years and thats just inflation at work if you want to ask,
Vancouver is the westernmost city in the world.

Central banking cartels that basically ruined the economy.

Fewer opportunities.

Higher taxes.

Uncontrolled immigration.

>1 is an artificial construct, according to modern science, the world is made up of unimaginably complex number of particles, which are not even solid things but a mixture of waves and possibility, there is no way to find a clear division anywhere in the world if you look deep enough, thinking in absolute terms is a purely human invention detached from reality

You are just coping because it threatens your naive world view. Stemcels have continuously been BTFO’d by humanities chads for hundreds of years
You're trying too hard
Humanities are my favorite subjects, you’re out of your mind if you don’t accept the superiority for problem solving of science
See, this is what I'm talking about. This is indistinguishably from someone trying to troll and legitimately believing this.
It's like counter-trolling for the people that agree with this kind of posts, to encourage them to say something supporting it and make a bigger mess.
You literally can’t make an argument except for muh fee-fees. Stemcels are only good for betabuxxing humanities chads through welfare gibsmedats

Because its the foundation of Europe.
For us Germans the Medieval age was were both our people, culture and nation were formed.
Same with the rest of Europe, really. One is drawn to ones roots.
Then also a general nostalgia for a distant past where things seem simpler or better.

Daily reminder only island nations are real nations. This is why Japan is honorary aryan and England conquered the planet whilst Italy can pass as an island and birthed the Roman empire. All other nations are disabled conjoined twins destined to be invaded and raped until the end of time

Face in the guillotine now, royalist cuck.
the king dying was of relatively minor consequence in the long list of reasons why the French revolution is shit
The only problem was it didn't go far enough.
well, I wouldn't say napoleon was a disaster

the Unviersity of Chicago is "cancelling" authors that supposedly supported slavery, including those considered classics who have been gone for millenia, if they were not hypocrites they would remove muhammad, sun tzu, hammurabi, etcetera... however they deliberately target europeans and ignore all the others

I don't get, why do protestants worship only the bible specifically? It's not like it was handwritten by god, the authors were inspired by the holy spirit, but so were all the sacraments and traditions of roman catholic church, and they reject nearly all of them.
Stop strawmanning Prods, dont step on their level.
The Catholic Church is unabashedly a power structure that cherry picks what is convenient in the Bible to make into doctrine and even had its own made up conception of Yahweh that is literally not the god of the Bible.

If I were still a Christian, I would totally renounce Catholicism and follow the Bible word for word because it’s the word of god. Nothing else makes sense
>worship idols and images and even man (pope) your whole life
>prots don't
>"they must worship something other than God, I KNOW THE BIBLE!"
idolater retards
>If I were still a Christian, I would totally renounce Catholicism and follow the Bible word for word because it’s the word of god. Nothing else makes sense

That makes no sense. While it is not true the structure and claims to authority made by Catholicism clearly date back to the early church, as they have most of them in common with eastern churches like the Orthodox. So If your not a Christian to begin with I fail to see how you would conclude Protestantism is more "legitimate"

Why are they so irrelevant? I can't think of a single important person of Baltic descent despite their population being close to Scandinavia's.

Lithuania used to be a major regional power you know
I wouldn't really consider filling up a power vacuum left by the mongols something worthy of a great power status. The second the russians got their shit together and attacked us, we suddenly couldn't defend ourselves without poland's help
Marija Gimbutas?
>Ladislaus of Varna, Eater of Turks
More like eater of Turkish dick.
His, and his mentally challenged relative Louis' incompetence gave Hungary to the Ottomans on a sliver plate.
Poland-Lithuania could sort of be considered a great power though, atleast when it was at its strongest, and that wouldn't have been possible if it was only Poland.

Buckle up, random wave of historical shit incoming.

Colorization of photos is a controversial topic. I kinda agree with those that dislike the practice, leaving them as is.
My fav factoid ever is the fact that Thomas Sankara was in a band call Tout-a-Coup or whatever. He was eventually killed in a Coup which was led by the singer of the band.
