Is The Creative Class Fading?
Florida counters, as he often does, with his own statistics, which claim that more jobs have been lost in the blue collar and service sector than the creative class since 2008. He argues without comparing the base size of these sectors, which is misleading. Florida's most convincing response is that creative class unemployment remains less than half that of blue collar or the national average.
How Florida's creative class will stimulate the next growth phase of the American economy remains unproved.
