The New Geography of Jobs

Last month I posted a series of reviews on this excellent book. In discussing cities and the role of hubs in the process of economic change, the examples in California are telling. The author compares and contrasts San Jose and Modesto and Seattle and Albuquerque (Modesto and Albuquerque were slightly ahead in the indicators referenced)during the 70s. We know how this story turned out, and the book makes a strong attempt to explain why. This is a book that all current students should either read or have read to them.
