Mother Jones examines " the battle ... over the future of Los Angeles' Skid Row," known as "the most depressing part" of the city. The story depicts the horrors and misery of the area, which "outsiders ... perceive ... as threatening, dangerous, lawless expanse," but which is also "posting an economic growth among the city's highest." The report sheds light on how "a new class of entrepreneurs has set up in the Row ... [and] the businesses have increasingly militated against the jobless." The story reveals that "everyone, from do-gooders to developers to City Hall, wants a piece of the action."
