THE NEW GEOGRAPHY OF JOBS

THE NEW GEOGRAPHY OF JOBS

By Enrico Moretti. Berkeley economist Moretti applies geography to economics to explore how changes in the world economy are reshaping the American workplace and American communities. Supported by maps, graphs, and charts, his analysis of the new "human capital century" tracks the "great divergence" from manufacturing to innovation, new forces of attraction that are reshaping America by creating "sexy cities," and restrictions on the mobility of the poor that keep them stuck in "poverty traps" and cost-of-living inequalities. Grades 9 and up. Index. Bibliography. Source notes. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 294 pages. ©2012.economicsissues
