PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] – Attending college in a large, vibrant city can boost wages after graduation, says an article in Money, which quotes Associate Professor of Economics John Friedman, a principal investigator for the The Equality of Opportunity Project. The Project seeks to determine which American colleges can help the most children climb the income ladder. A recent study co-authored by Friedman characterizes "intergenerational income mobility" at U.S. colleges.
