Description: A new Brookings Institution report shows that while the tech sector is lifting the economy as a whole, most of that benefit is concentrated in just a few places, and that disparity is getting worse instead of better. Despite frequent reports that suggest the fall of the traditional tech hubs like Silicon Valley and the rise of places like Pittsburgh and Indianapolis, the numbers show it isn’t happening, not really.

Questions for discussion:
- What does the report suggest is happening to technology centers around the country and the reasons why?
- Do you agree with the suggested solution?
- How should managers of technology firms deal with this information?
