Foremost amongst these features are biodiversity itself; clean and, ideally, flowing water; semi-wooded landscapes; and places in which we can obtain both vantage over our surroundings and refuge against attack.

One way to make jubilee a reality in Cincinnati
Peter Block asked a group of us at the Conspire conference how we could make the Biblical concept of Jubilee real, maybe starting in one of Cincinnati’s 50 plus neighborhoods. An idea came to me; we could focus on toxic debt in say, the West End neighborhood, and figure out what the cost of, say, crippling credit card debt in that poor neighborhood is to people living in one of the city’s affluent neighborhoods.

Economic Brief, October 2018, No. 18-10 - Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond
Inequality in the United States has an important spatial component. More-skilled workers tend to live in larger cities where they earn higher wages. Less-skilled workers make lower wages and do not experience similar gains even when they live in those cities. This dynamic implies that larger cities are also more unequal. These relationships appear to have become more pronounced as inequality has increased. The evidence points to externalities among high-skilled workers as a significant contributor to those patterns.
