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.
