Vincent Del Giudice and Wei Lu: America’s Best and Brightest Are Headed to Boulder

This chart says it: the cities marked in red are the “metropolitan areas with the greatest loss of advanced-degree holders, white-collar jobs and earnings generated by employment in computer, engineering and science occupations” while the cities marked in blue are those with the greatest gain. The Boulder Colorado metropolitan area, where I live (see “Miles Moves to the University of Colorado Boulder”) is number one in brain-gain in this chart. Maybe you, too, should join this migration to the Boulder area :)
