Robert A. Manduca's paper, “The Contribution of National Income Inequality to Regional Economic Divergence,” has been published in Social Forces.  In this article, Robert explores the drivers of the increasing divergence in income levels between regions of the United States. He shows that most of this divergence results from growing income inequality at the national level, and only a minority of it stems from changes in which types of workers live in which cities.
