Millennials Moving Out
My colleague Joe Miller has written much about the idea that millennials are flocking to urban areas. This is important because, at least in Kansas City, city officials hold up the prospect of attracting millennials as the reason for their downtown spending spree on luxury apartments, hotels, and streetcars. Miller has pointed out that at best, the research on millennials eschewing cars and preferring urban life is mixed.
On Thursday, American Public Media broadcast a story on NPR suggesting that millennials aren't that different from previous generations at all.
