Business correspondent Paul Solman and Dante Chinni of Patchwork Nation recently traveled to two counties in Ohio: Crawford and Delaware. Thirty years ago the counties had similar average incomes but they’ve grown apart. The town of Galion in Crawford County is struggling while cities like Powell in Delaware County and nearby Columbus have grown richer. In this Web-only video, Paul and Dante discuss the two worlds they found and how the situation compares to the last story they did together on inequality in Los Alamos and Espanola, N.M.
