Topic Economics of Place

How an individual or family experiences economic gains and losses can differ dramatically depending on where one lives—one’s geographic place in the United States. Economic mobility, economic growth, business dynamism, job opportunities, and other measures of economic prosperity can vary dramatically across different regions and communities. Equitable Growth seeks to better understand the reasons for these variations and explores what can be done to ensure that all Americans feel the benefits of economic growth regardless of where they call home.
