This week, we took a little field trip to explore how big businesses move into gentrifying neighborhoods.
Think about chains. Starbucks, Panera Bread, Chipotle.... They mean something different in communities and cities across the country. Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia, has studied why chains open where they do.
He joined Marketplace Weekend at Starbucks ... from 3,000 miles away.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
