There's a myth in this country that enormous wealth doesn't come from anywhere or anyone, that it's self-creating and self-sustaining, thriving on pure oxygen like an epiphyte or a garden fairy. In reality, highly concentrated wealth is caused by actions -- human actions with human consequences.

Like many American cities, a significant subset of our population remains in poverty, lacking the skills needed to fill many of the jobs the city has to offer. As mayor, it's my job to figure out how to both address our city's challenges and boost our assets and, whenever possible, find solutions that meet those two needs at the same time.

Each one of those foreign dollars helps build up our economy and create new jobs that can never be outsourced overseas.

These investments have had major impact on the city as a whole and the well-being of all of our residents.

As much as we'd like it to be otherwise, the fact is that large problems call for equally large solutions. The answer is not only to cut spending, nor is it only to raise taxes. The answer is some measure of the two.

The burning policy question at the center of all this is what effect will an increase in the top individual tax rate have on small business job creation. Democrats say not much. Republicans say a great deal.
