What can the government do to help solve the problem of poverty in Appalachia and the Ozarks? I mean you have mountainous places in France like Alsace Lorraine and in Germany like North Rhine Westphalia and Baden Wurtemberg that are also relatively remote but do not have the problem of endemic poverty and overall suckiness that Appalachia and the Ozarks have, what types of industries could provide the number of well paying jobs that the coal industry used to provide? Tourism is mostly low paid jobs.
