Unrewarded careers in the creative class: The strange case of bohemian graduates
AbstractIn recent years, the role of human capital in economic development has been integrated with the concept of 'creative class'. To investigate the impact of creative occupations, the paper focuses on the jobs and career opportunities of individuals with high human capital in the creative disciplines (bohemian graduates). Using micro-individual student data by the Higher Education Statistical Agency, we highlight the mismatch between bohemian graduates and creative occupations and their low economic reward. The data question the role of bohemian graduates as agents of knowledge spillovers and highlight the need to differentiate between different type of human capital and job markets to better understand their influence on local growth.
