The BBC interviewed CEGA Affiliate Diana Moreira in a recent article examining how the latest trend of workers moving from urban to rural areas in light of COVID-19 is playing out in developing nations like Brazil as opposed to wealthier countries like the United States:

“One difference in developing countries is that there are fewer wealthy suburbs, something ‘common in the US and not so common in Brazil’, says Diana Moreira, a professor economics at the University of California, Davis. “This implies that relocations are likely to be temporary, as the infrastructure in those places often do not have the supply of services including internet, poor sewerage, and good quality schools for a permanent move.'”
