• why certain areas of a city seem more “preferable” than others?
• why many wealthy residents seem to prefer one particular area of a city?
• whether other U.S. cities share the same economic characteristics?
• why the city you are most familiar with probably has one area better developed and seems “wealthier” than other areas of that city?
• whether there is a pattern to the distribution of household wealth within a city?
For answers to these and other intriguing questions about wealth distribution in U.S. cities, you must attend this interesting and informative presentation by Harold J. Gallagher.
Mr. Gallagher is currently a graduate student at California State University Fresno studying for a Master’s degree in English. He holds a B.A. degree in Mathematics and Physics, a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering, an M.B.A. in Finance and Marketing, and an M.A. in Art (Sculpture). His avocation is aviation and his role as a Certified Flight Instructor led him into the Geography Department to study weather and its effects on flight characteristics and safety.
