“There’s more to say about these studies and dynamics. My main interest in them relates to the impact of remote work. When companies can hire from anywhere, the most qualified candidates will have to stand out in a bigger-than-ever talent pool. The bigger the pool, the greater the role of luck in determining the distribution of income — and the more motivated less-qualified participants will be to stand out and try to get a piece of the pie.”


So much for the benefits of working remotely.
