Economist’s Research Discussed in Digital Website Column

An article on the QUARTZ website by economist and editor Richard Florida, author of “The Rise of the Creative Class,” discusses a recent study, “The Creative Class and the Crisis,” by University of Maine economist Todd Gabe and colleagues about how three broad categories of jobs have fared since the apex of the economic crisis. The researchers found that blue-collar workers have been hit hardest, while creative class workers and metropolitan regions with larger numbers of creative jobs fared considerable better. Creative class workers include individuals working in science, technology, arts, entertainment and professional types of jobs.
