About this book

Provides a new interpretation of the economy of the Mountain West of the United States, based on evidence from a wide variety of sources, including data on individual employment and income histories of more than 300,000 residents. It demonstrates that the region's economic misfortunes are not the result of changes in regional industrial structure but rather are local manifestations of pervasive national and international trends.
