    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was once the poster city for post-industrial decline. As manufacturing moved offshore in the decades after the second world war the city emptied out -- over 500,000 people left the city between 1970 and 1990. The city has now been voted 'America's most liveable city.' The man credited with that turnaround is Tom Murphy, who is in Australia to attend an international planning symposium at Sydney University.
