The Creative Economy

The economy is changing. And the most highly-desired jobs? Those with creative outlets, flexibility, a sense of individuality. “Creative individuals no longer need to be isolated, romantic souls who’ve given up worldly success for the sake of their art. We must abandon our prejudices regarding the sources of economic value. The production of wealth comes not simply from labor or raw materials or even intellectual brilliance. It comes from new ways to give people what they want. By matching creativity and desire, the economy will renew itself.”
