    There probably are no one size fits all solutions.  A town suffering from economic dislocations will need solutions that fit its circumstances.  Of course, any program is to be aimed at people, not at a geographical location.

    If we're willing to have a carbon tax why not dedicate the proceeds to fund programs for displaced workers?
