.i don't get the last sentence. the context is: 【my friend introduced me to a simple but reliable metric that he called the "gate test." He said the way to see which of two alternatives is preferred is to lift a gate between them and watch which way things move. People vote with their feet。People and money move from a place that is less desirable to a place that is more hospitable."】 another question: what does "gate test" mean?

The friend explains what a "gate test" is in the paragraph. He(she) has a gate or barrier between two possible alternatives. By lifting the gate, or removing the barrier he learns which alternative is more desirable by seeing which alternative is chosen the most. This friend has named this procedure "the gate test".
