Where Should I Work?

This research paper provides a career roadmap for knowledge workers in the new creative economy.

The paper, by Martin Prosperity Institute Fellow Nilofer Merchant and associate director of cities Vass Bednar, and research associate Melissa Pogue, uses a novel combination of occupations, industries, employment, and demographics to help modern professionals not only identify when and where they are most valuable, but also how they can best harness that value in the workplace.
