We’re used to thinking of the United States in opposing terms: red versus blue, haves versus have-nots.
But today there are three Americas. At one extreme are the brain hubs-cities like San Francisco, Boston, and Durham-with workers who are among the most productive, creative and best paid on the planet. At the other extreme are former manufacturing capitals, which are rapidly losing jobs and residents. The rest of America could go either way.
For the past 30 years, the three Americas have been growing apart at an accelerated rate. This divergence is reshaping the very fabric of our society, affecting all aspects of our lives, from health and education to family stability and political engagement. But the winners and losers aren’t necessarily who you’d expect.

A global-innovation expert offers a new perspective on how consumers think and how to develop products and services that affect their everyday lives.
Who are your next customers-not just the ones you are serving today but the ones you’ll need three, five, or 10 years from now? How do you figure out what goods and services will attract them before your competitors do?
According to Jan Chipchase, most of the clues are right in front of us. The key is learning to see the ordinary in a revolutionary new way. As the executive creative director of global insights at a global design and innovation company, Chipchase draws on everyday objects and patterns to show us how to see the world differently, from making a phone call to filling up a gas tank.
