In the March issue of The Atlantic, Derek Thompson writes that young people can find, according to study published by economists from Harvard and Berkeley, upward mobility in “rich coastal metropolises, including San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego, and New York City.” One major problem: These cities have also been found to be the least affordable in the country. But in these studies, one metropolitan area stands out as landing in the top 10 in the Harvard-Berkeley mobility study and being generally affordable: Minneapolis–St. Paul.
