With "The New Geography of Books" Moretti shows how in an increasingly globalised world - counter-intuitively - a small number of cities gains greater and greater importance. The US reality has shown that businesses tend to group together in Hubs, cities which end up offering a high density of jobs and workforce. The more important education is for an industry, the higher the chances that companies and workforce will start to move towards these kind of Hubs - of which the most famous today is probably Silicon Valley.
A very good read for anyone interested in the way the global economy evolves, since Moretti is pointing out one very interesting, yet essential dimension. It is probably an especially good read for people involved in local politics or local community development.
