Reading List

The blocks below represent topics that are covered in the course each week along with required readings that are assigned to those topics. Students in the course will read two books during the course (New Geography of Jobs and We Wanted Workers), so those chapters may not correspond directly with the topics. The extra reading tends to be more closely tied with class material or serves as a preview for the upcoming lesson.

Students in the class are given PDFs of the reading posted in the course management system. Below, Amazon links to the book are included.
