So Long Creative Class, Been Nice to Know You

Scott Timberg at Salon has tried to shine a little light on a strangely unreported story, that the “Creative Class”, heralded in 2002 by Richard Florida as the engine of the new prosperity, is disappearing very,very quickly, leaving a handful of media elites holding large bags of money but also leaving the huge majority of “creatives” scratching in the dirt.

The unreporting is strange because journalists’ jobs are disappearing as fast as anyone’s so they should be in a position to notice it and would certainly have the skills to let the rest of us know about it.

The article cites some useful resources, besides being insightful itself. In other formats we would call the other resources a “bibliography”, and having one sort of sets off this article from the normal blog post.
