The typical situation for a poor urban or rural community was disinvestment — taxes, bank deposits, business profits, and sales flowed out of the community, but did not flow back in the form of jobs, investments, infrastructure, or even basic public services. Communities responded by fostering reinvestment. Strategies have included things like demanding accountability from the institutions that draw on local support, trying to attract business to the community, and developing alternative enterprises and services to recycle dollars within the community. In places where disinvestment has happened, communities have pushed for reinvestment in that place.
At the same time, things are changing in rural communities.Rural population is increasing for the first time since World War II. People are rediscovering the value and benefit of rural life and small town quality. Even the Disney corporation recognized this, with the development of a high - profile planned community modeled after traditional Main Street design and function. Building on Assets for Community Transformation. Manufacturing, tourism, recreation, and retirement are now as much a part of rural life as farming, fishing, mining, or ranching.
