      Did they account for taxes and insurance in these places?

        I never understood why people who live in the ghetto can't just walk out and go to a place that is better.

            Employment? Its not as if everyone can just walk away from whatever job they have and move. Or.. is it.

              Nah, gumption. Read Grapes of Wrath. The Okies left their "ghetto" and moved to California, and everything was peachy after that. The basic message of that book is that if things aren't working out where you are, try moving.

                  Fortunately (for the Okies) there's no border patrol on that border.

                  I was just reading about this book in the February Reason magazine:

                  Let Their People Come: Breaking the Gridlock on Global Labor Mobility
                  Lant Pritchett
                  http://cgdev.org/content/publications/detail/10174/

                  In an increasingly liberalized and integrated global economy, with more open capital and goods and services markets, the highly restricted and heavily regulated markets for global labor are an oddity. In this controversial book, CGD non-resident fellow Lant Pritchett examines the potentials and perils of greater cross-border mobility of unskilled labor -- within poor world regions and between poor and rich countries. Pritchett argues that irresistible demographic forces for greater international labor mobility are being checked by immovable anti-immigration ideas of rich-country citizens. He highlights the difficult political and ethical issues that the movement of people across national borders presents to the current system and proposes breaking the gridlock through policies that support development while also being politically acceptable in rich countries. These include greater use of temporary worker permits, permit rationing, reliance on bilateral rather than multilateral agreements, and protection of migrants' fundamental human rights. Pritchett's discussion of ways to break the deadlock is a provocative contribution to the growing debate on one of the most important and difficult issues of the 21st century.
                  (Chapters of the book are available from the above link.)
