Jason Hartman and Rabbi Evan Moffic talk about the big migration out of high density areas. Starting in 2016 a trend of moving to low density areas started to grow and the pandemic has encouraged the departure from more densely populated areas. While these trends may rely heavily on the wants and needs of Generation Z, health issues and worker experiences might speed up the migration.
[4:00] Pandemic proved how densely we are living, and also how successfully you can live working remotely
[7:00] Starting in 2016, a trend of non-metropolitan counties were gaining population more-so than metropolitan counties
[9:45] A lot of the migration trends could depend a lot on Generation Z
[13:00] What led you to believe that this mass migration to lower density living would occur?
[16:40] The average population density (APD) of the U.S.A. is only 87 people per square mile
[17:28] The APD of metropolitan areas of the U.S.A. is 283 people per square mile, and the APD of New York City is 27,000 people per square mile
[21:30] The rise of socialism
[25:30] “Expansions make millionaires, recessions and depressions make billionaires”
