City resilience?

Meant to blog a couple of days ago about some press coverage of Edinburgh being on 'amber alert' as regards the possible impact of the recession on the city ... BBC covered the story here; all based on a report launched by the Centre for Cities.

Whilst acknowledging that things are looking pretty serious for Edinburgh, when you actually go to the full report, which generated this story - it can be accessed directly here - there are quite a lot of underlying strengths within Edinburgh (qualification standards being the one that jumps out) which do hold out some hope of longer-term recovery for the Capital.

... definitely worth a quick read.
