Nice article reviewing cultural/economic differences with regards to mobility. It then dovetails into what are some potential policy measures that could be enacted which could benefit those less mobile, unemployed folks stuck in high unemployment localities. On the surface the measure has similar characteristics to school voucher programs, but the principal difference being that company x is a company, not a school responsible for young people’s development. Bodies are needed to fill positions and supply far outstrips demand. But I would think there are some arguments against incentivizing a city’s citizens from leaving said city, despite high unemployment rates.
