Join O-Lab for a discussion exploring new advances in regionally-targeted economic development policy!

Over the last several years, researchers have contributed to a growing body evidence on how economic inequality has shifted the geography of jobs and opportunity, fostering enthusiasm for policy efforts channeling economic development funds toward low-income places in the United States, rather than simply to low-income households.

O-Lab’s 2023 Convening on Regional Inequality and Place-Based Policy, co-sponsored by the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, will explore this shift in the research and policy landscape, with a focus on what we can learn from recent legislation and pilot programs in this field, and what kinds of new experimentation and evidence are still needed.
