Excerpt

June 28, 2022, Video: "The Growth Lab Research Seminar series is a weekly seminar that brings together researchers from across the academic spectrum who share an interest in growth and development. In this talk, Gordon Hanson, Peter Wertheim Professor in Urban Policy at Harvard Kennedy School, discusses his research on how to help lagging regions create better jobs for disadvantaged workers. Traditional industrial regions have fallen behind economically across high-income countries due to globalization, new technology, and now the energy transition. Hanson believes new approaches are needed to diagnose the causes of persistent regional economic distress and the effectiveness of alternative policies in relieving this distress."
