The Cal-Berkeley economic professor's book is extremely necessary for politicians and commentators alike, book that artfully slays myriad myths that cloud the economic debate. His book, The New Geography of Jobs , is well-written and filled with important facts and wise policy advice. It is an excellent addition to the literature on the economics of place.

In those places, less than 15 percent of the residents have college degrees. In those places, nearly 50 percent of the residents have college degrees. As Enrico Moretti writes in The New Geography of Jobs , the magnet places have positive ecologies that multiply innovation, creativity and wealth.

The abandoned places have negative ecologies and fall further behind. This sorting is self-reinforcing, and it seems to grow more unforgiving every year. The jobs range from yoga instructors to restaurant owners. Moretti calculated such a multiplier effect by examining U. Census Bureau data from eight million workers in areas during the past 30 years.

Moretti says the data support the argument that technology innovators are one of the most important engines of job creation in the U. Best guesses are manufacturing jobs are still scarce. Meanwhile, new economy places like Silicon Valley continue to thrive. The difference? Location, location, location. While having more high-skilled workers around tends to raise everyone's salaries, Moretti's research shows that low-skilled workers benefit four to five times more than college graduates.

Even as liberals work to find a way to counteract the problem of the 1 percent, they should view high skilled immigrants as a step toward turning America back into a true middle-class society. It is dense with ideas, but spiced liberally with local detail" -- The Journal of Economic Geography. A welcome contribution from a newcomer who provides both a different view and balance in addressing one of the country's more profound problems.

Author Enrico Moretti, an Italian-born economics professor at Berkeley, analyzes the great divergence occurring between metropolitan regions in the United States. While much of his narrative about the innovation sector as the key driver in regional growth will be familiar to readers of Richard Florida, Moretti provides a valuable counter-balance to Florida's theories about the creative class.

The New Geography of Jobs is the sort of economics that should be widely read, digested, and discussed. And Enrico is right that we should pay attention to the geography of where smart people are choosing to work, play, and live their lives. Ultimately, it has consequences for all of us.

You'll need solid, hard-core information to do it. And for that, The New Geography of Jobs is hard to resist. His perspective is dynamic, placing the present situation in the context of the evolution of industrial production and labor markets over the past 50 years.

Without referring to Charles Murray, Moretti blows Coming Apart totally out of the water, replacing Murray's moralistic sociology with solid economics. He's clear and concise. He has writer's knack for pulling out the illustrative detail while never losing the broad sweep of events.

It is truly a skill to be equally at home in the abstract realm of statistics and the very emotion-laden world of human decision-making. Most economists forget that the conclusions they draw from their sample populations also contain the drama of people's actual lives within them. Moretti remembers this while avoiding another trap of economists. He doesn't leave his story in the realm of the theoretical, but constantly brings his tale back to real-world existence in a way that amplifies the argument by making it coincide with everyday experience.

Most importantly, he knows his subject well and he's talking about something that is shaping our future more than we realize. Moretti convincingly demonstrates that the inequalities that matter most in early 21st century America are the differences across places. An individual standard of living is increasingly determined by where she lives, not just what she does. Wages are higher, and unemployment lower, for workers living in an "innovation cluster" than for comparably educated workers outside of these privileged places.

Which communities will transform themselves into dynamic innovation hubs in and beyond? It can be done. Get educated, get a map and get going! By comparison, he found that just 1. Vascellaro, Wall Street Journal. In his vision, innovative workers and companies create prosperity that flows broadly, but these gains are mostly metropolitan in scale, meaning that geography substantially determines economic vitality.

Some commentators have described New Geography as the best economic development book of And if you don't read New Geography , you would also miss reading the best, most readable explanation and defense of innovation, knowledge-based economics and their effects on the location of jobs in the United States.

There is a lot going on in New Geography. Moretti's findings are both significant and provocative. Berkeley, provides an excellent big-picture analysis of the increasingly divergent outlook for our nation's cities and delves into the reasons why this disparity is likely to widen.

Berkeley economist Enrico Moretti pretty much says "that is so 10 years ago! There's a sea change going on, a redistribution of population and wealth fueled by innovative companies that need to be in ecosystems to thrive. However, not everyone agrees that more manufacturing equals more jobs. In his book The New Geography of Jobs , University of California at Berkeley economics professor Enrico Moretti argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, the information economy is a driver of job growth.

The problem, according to Moretti, is that we often look at places like Palo Alto, Calif. Using reams of U. Census data, Moretti estimates that for every job created by the likes of Apple or Cisco Systems, another five jobs are added in the local service industry.

Moretti, an economist at the University of California Berkeley, offers a comprehensive and non-technical discussion of the shift to a knowledge-based economy, the growing importance of human capital to individual and community economic success, and the critical role played by industry clustering in driving innovation and productivity.

For Moretti, this shift to a knowledge economy means the economic prospects of cities are diverging: adaptable places with talent are becoming more prosperous, while those with less talent and locked in to traditional industries struggle. However, The New Geography of Jobs takes a step back to revel in the Big Picture where the real patterns of commerce can be explored.

Cal Berkeley economics professor contains vital insights and data about the nature of jobs in our new economy. The thesis he unveils is, at its core, extraordinarily encouraging because American innovators have so much untapped potential.

In Moretti's opinion the data don't support this view. And despite all the hype about the "death of distance" and the "flat world", where you live matters more than ever. Moretti has a way of looking at things we all know in new and refreshing ways.

Whereas the 20th century was defined by physical capital producing physical goods, the 21st century is increasingly driven by human capital and its output of innovation and knowledge.

Smart people tend to cluster into globally competitive "brain hubs" that, in Moretti's eyes, will form the basis for much of America's future prosperity.

But today there are three Americas. At one extreme are the brain hubs--cities like San Francisco, Boston, and Durham--with 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 rest of America could go either way. For the past thirty years, the three Americas have been growing apart at an accelerating rate. This divergence is one the most important developments in the history of the United States and is reshaping the very fabric of our society, affecting all aspects of our lives, from health and education to family stability and political engagement.

But the winners and losers aren't necessarily who you'd expect. Enrico Moretti's groundbreaking research shows that you don't have to be a scientist or an engineer to thrive in one of the brain hubs. Carpenters, taxi-drivers, teachers, nurses, and other local service jobs are created at a ratio of five-to-one in the brain hubs, raising salaries and standard of living for all. Dealing with this split--supporting growth in the hubs while arresting the decline elsewhere--is the challenge of the century, and The New Geography of Jobs lights the way.

Regional Inequality and ‘The New Geography of Jobs’

What explains the wide range of economic growth and prosperity across U. In his vision, innovative workers and companies create prosperity that flows broadly, but these gains are mostly metropolitan in scale, meaning that geography substantially determines economic vitality. To start, the book offers a hopeful interpretation of technological change and globalization. Moretti argues that moving low-skilled jobs out of the United States has allowed tech companies to increase productivity and expand employment at home for high-skilled workers, while lowering prices for American consumers.
