Ep. 89: Our Stagnant Labor Market
Sponsored by Quip
Americans are no longer moving. And that's a problem for the economy, adversely affecting everything from productivity growth, to income inequality, to monetary policy. At least, that's the argument of law professor David Schleicher, author of the recent Yale Law Journal article, "Stuck! The Law and Economics of Residential Stagnation," an insightful study of how state and local governments are hindering labor market mobility, why that's a problem, and what can be done about it.
Professor Schleicher is an expert in election law, land use, local government law, and urban development, among other fields, and he writes frequently for both academic journals and more popular outlets such as The Atlantic and Slate.
