About half of the return to a college education over and above that of a high school education, is eaten up by higher costs of livingâcollege grads tend to live in high wage but high cost urban areas. So says this working paper  by Enrico Moretti (HT: Peter St. Onge). He recognizes that the higher costs of living are partly because of higher amenities in urban areas. Clever insight. Might be important.
