It's graduation season in America and a good time to be leaving college and looking for a job.Some of these trends might prove ephemeral, but there is no denying that economic indicators are firmly positive.I was honored to be the commencement speaker at Ohio State University two weekends ago, and I predicted that graduates looking for a job would get one in a city.Mark Muro of the Brookings Institution has calculated that over the last decade, the 53 largest American metro areas have accounted for 71 percent of all population growth, two-thirds of all employment growth and a staggering three quarters of all economic growth. In fact, half of all job growth in the United States took place in just 20 cities.Meanwhile, small towns and rural America have lost residents and contributed barely anything to economic growth. A 2013 study argued that current programs could feasibly be scaled up to include 1 million volunteers without taking jobs from existing workers, yielding societal benefits worth more than four times the costs.National service will not solve all of America's problems.
