Name That State!

North Carolina. Or Wisconsin.

In the USA there are fifty states to choose from, so we can expect to see people voting with their feet to escape states that are under Republican occupation. Those people with the highest education and the greatest technical skills will be the ones who are most likely to emigrate.

States that have not embraced 19th century economic and social theories will benefit the most from an influx of highly-skilled researchers and workers. Unfortunately, Wisconsin will not be one of the winners. It is more likely to become a prime example of the failure of austerity economics in tandem with brutal and divisive social policies.

And, as always, the poor, darker-than-white, and other marginal groups with no mobility among us will get screwed the hardest.
