I love the Midmorning audience. They ask great questions and on a daily basis they show how smart they are.
This morning, Kerri Miller looked at the question of whether South Dakota is taking jobs from Minnesota.
It’s a question without an answer, according to a story from MPR a week ago (ignore the misleading headline). “We really don’t have good numbers on that,” said Art Rolnick, a senior fellow at the Humphrey Institute and former official with the Minneapolis Federal Reserve.
In the absence of data, then, we’re left with anecdotal evidence. A caller from Sioux Falls to Midmorning asked “where are all these jobs?”
We got this e-mail from listener David Frank of Canby, MN:
Here is a link to a story that might answer that question. You are free to use your own judgment as to the validity of the source.
The link goes to a 2008 story from MPR.
Well played, sir. Well played.
