Let’s stop calling it the creator economy
Notes

When we talk about the creator economy, we’re talking about people doing creative work, on their own or with a few others.

If you’re not in the creator economy, I have some bad news for you: you’re out of a job. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But some day, and for the rest of your life.

Pretty soon, the creator economy, along with the caring economy, will be the economy.

That’s a good thing. Here’s why.

“less than 3% of us are employed in textiles, farming and mining” – 2,349,000 in agriculture, 684,000 in mining and 444,000 in textiles out of a total of 147,795,000 employed in the US in 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics
