I don't find the correlations particularly persuasive in one direction or another--obviously there's a ton of ways the state of the economy could affect the growth of finance, and they also only looked at six time periods spanning three decades.

The "best and brightest" will (generally) go where they are paid the most. Where they are paid the most is where they (generally) add the most economic value.
