Description
We're used to thinking of the United States in opposing terms: red versus blue, haves versus have-nots. But today there are three Americas, argues economics professor Enrico Moretti. At one extreme are the brain hubsócities like San Francisco, Boston, and Durhamówith workers who are among the most productive, creative, and best paid on the planet. At the other extreme are former manufacturing capitals, which are rapidly losing jobs and residents. The third part, the rest of the country, could go either way, and for the past 30 years, the three segments have been growing apart at an accelerating rate. This divergence is reshaping the very fabric of our society, as Moretti demonstrates, affecting everything from health and education to family stability and political engagementóbut the winners and losers aren't necessarily who you'd expect.

"A persuasive look at why some U.S. cities have prospered in recent decades while others have declined."óBloomberg Businessweek
