Have you ever wondered how distinct events and policies can affect the economic state of your city? Substantial events can heavily influence the economic pattern and therefore sway population numbers within the city. In my research I explore multiple events / policies that demonstrate different severities and the impact on the economic status of Binghamton. During the times of selected changes -for example the closing of EJ Shoe Factory - I pinpoint the economic phases and analyze how these circumstances caused a change within the economic cycle. The research will also contain an analysis of how the cycle change of the city holds power - if any - over the population of Binghamton. The information produced from this project can assist in preparing the population of Binghamton in case of life-altering events that may occur in the upcoming years, as well as help in the understanding of the connections between policies, economics, and population.
