A new book by Enrico Moretti discusses the '<a href="http://www.amazon.com/The-Geography-Jobs-Enrico-Moretti/dp/0547750110/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_5" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">geography of jobs</a>'.
But the winners and losers aren’t necessarily who you’d expect. Moretti’s groundbreaking research shows that you don’t have to be a scientist or an engineer to thrive in one of these brain hubs. Among the beneficiaries are the workers who support the “idea-creators”—the carpenters, hair stylists, personal trainers, lawyers, doctors, teachers and the like. In fact, Moretti has shown that for every new innovation job in a city, five additional non-innovation jobs are created, and those workers earn higher salaries than their counterparts in other cities.
…. “for every new innovation job in a city, five additional non-innovation jobs are created” – think about that.
