Decoupling Work and Place

One of the silver linings of the COVID-19 pandemic is that work and place are decoupling is increasing the radius of economic opportunity. Previously, where you live and where you work were tightly coupled, but with the rise of remote work, more jobs can be done in more places.

When we look back in 10 to 20 years time, I’m confident we will see this decoupling as one of the most profound changes to the workforce since the internet. In many ways, remote work is a transportation technology that is only just beginning to transform where and how we live.
