Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Couldn’t the San Francisco Giants,
representatives of the second-wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area,
manage to lose at least one World Series game to the Detroit
Tigers, the standard-bearers for one of the most troubled U.S.
The ever-magnanimous New York Yankees generously boosted
the Motor City’s morale by giving the Tigers a clean sweep in
the American League Championship Series, but the Giants crushed
their opponents. Perhaps the Giants felt compelled to send the
country, and our presidential candidates, a clear reminder that
their home city, and not Detroit, provides a clear model for
America’s economic future.
