Three types of communities are emerging in which geography, more so than occupation, is a major factor in personal success. One type is full of “idea creators” who each generate large numbers of new jobs and where workers in the service sectors have far higher salaries than elsewhere. At the opposite extreme are those communities where jobs and population are vanishing. Teetering in the middle are those that could go either way over the next generation. How will these broad disparities affect economic development policy across the country? Join UC Berkeley economist Enrico Moretti as he presents the ideas and research in his 2012 book The New Geography of Jobs.
