The economy of Medellin has been stuck for a long time, the unemployment rate was unusually high, a breeding ground for high juvenile delinquency, which the infamous drug distributors used to generate even more violence and crime. One of the most affected places was the Comuna 13 (read more about the development of this neighbourhood here). Although the unemployment rate and (youth) crime probably influenced each other, together they had a strong effect on the overall city’s economy. Another reason for the stucked economics: the remoteness of certain areas - it was hardly possible to reach the city centre within a reasonable period of time.
