Understanding why some regions are more resilient than others in the face of economic adversity remains a top priority for urban scholars and practitioners. Connections between economic geography, technology, labor markets, educational attainment, hierarchy, and history can confer lasting regional competitive advantage and competitive disadvantage. While innovation and creativity are vital components of the resilience equation, economic vitality is also closely tied to industry cycles, regional portfolios of traded-sector industries, and occupational structure. This session will consist of papers examining variation in the economic resilience of U.S. metropolitan regions from industrial-, occupational-, and skills-based perspectives.
