ABSTRACT
The article offers an historical perspective on the steel industry in the U.S. Former U.S. Steel Corp. market research and analysis director economist Glenn Kidd draws an analogy using the evolution of the nation's interstate highways and the displacement of communities along old Route 66, to compare it to the development of the steel industry. He finds that the steel industry is similarly bypassing some competitors and leaving ghost towns where steel towns once thrived.
