Left Behind

The Economic Innovation Group reports:
Most American communities are not distressed, but they are far from flourishing. Jobs grew at less than half the national rate in the median U.S. zip code over the recovery years. The number of businesses in the median community remained flat. The country’s top zip codes, meanwhile, are in the midst of an economic boom. Zip codes mere miles apart occupy vastly different planes of community well-beingand few people are truly mobile between them. It is little surprise that many Americans feel they have been left behind.
