Skills and Creativity in a Cross-section of Dutch Cities
Abstract In this paper we examine Richard Floridaâ€™s Creative Capital theory in comparison with Human Capital theory, using a cross section of Dutch cities as our sample. Employment growth in Dutch cities can be predicted both from local education levels and from the presence of a large creative class, but especially from the latter. We conclude that in theory creativity is not very different from human capital. Nevertheless Floridaâ€™s creative class is a better standard to measure human capital then education is. Keywords: human capital, creative class, urban growth
