Column Cites Gabe Economics Research

Research by University of Maine School of Economics researcher Todd Gabe was cited in a column in The Atlantic Cities, an affiliate of The Atlantic Monthly magazine. In the column, economist Richard Florida, author of “The Rise of the Creative Class,” used Gabe’s research findings about the so-called creative class to defend his theories about how local economies benefit from an influx of people working in creative or artistic fields. Florida wrote that Gabe found that the creative class is a distinct measure from educationally based human capital, and that the creative class adds considerable economic value on its own.
