Edward L. Glaeser on The Rise of the Creative Class

from Marginal Rev. 

Qoute:

"In fact, a closer look at the data tells us that the Bohemianism effect is driven entirely by
two metropolitan areas: Las Vegas, Nevada, and Sarasota, Florida. These are the two
“Bohemian” centers that drive the relationship. The fifth regression repeats the fourth
regression with these two metropolitan areas. Excluding those two cities means that the
college variable becomes quite significant, and bohemianism becomes irrelevant. Given
that I will never believe that either Las Vegas or Sarasota stand as stellar examples of
Bohemianism
, I will draw another conclusion from these regressions: skilled people are
the key to urban success."

Ed has obviously never been to Sarasota, FL.

    p.s. perhaps the problem is most of the bohemians in Sarasota count as the skilled labor. After all New College brings in some of the most interesting including kids already making money from their projects on the side.
