Can Buffalo ever come back?

Ed Glaeser says no and offers very many reasons why.  His conclusion:

The best scenario would be for Buffalo to become a much smaller but
more vibrant community–shrinking to greatness, in effect.  Far better
that outcome than wasting yet more effort and resources on the foolish
project of restoring the City of Light’s past glory.

Does studying economics make the people of Buffalo happier?
