Description

Research regarding spillover effects of academic innovation tends to focus on the effects innovation from metro areas on metro area labor markets. The results suggest that innovation in big cities generates migration to metros from non metros, thereby reducing available labor supply. As a result metro innovation reduces non metro employment but increase earning for people who reside in non metros. We have evidence that higher innovation in metros increase human capital in non metro areas
