The ZIP Code Reality: Where You Live Matters
Not only is the way we work rapidly changing, the atlas of where we work — from coasts, to states, to counties — is increasingly studied and interpreted. Sixty percent of net job growth by 2030 will take place in 25 cities across the United States, while current projections suggest that other, less urban areas throughout the United States will only see a 3 percent increase in jobs. McKinsey’s Andre Dua will discuss geographic opportunity across the US, having mapped county by county our strengths and weaknesses. Mary C. Daly of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, will then explore a different angle in conversation with David Brooks: how are communities creating opportunity for themselves when the data may be working against them? The future of work has many unknowns, but this level of clarity is well worth our understanding.
