Creative Economy
The creative economy is fueled not by coal and oil, capital and machinery, but primarily by ideas. Its driver is often the entrepreneur who has come up with a new way of thinking and whose primary resource is his or her creativity--although a corporation can lead in the creative economy too, if its work is mainly based on ideas and information. In creative economy sectors, in which the Twin Cities abound, the greatest asset a corporation can have isn't something physical like coal mines or even software, but it employees. It's their talent and smarts that make enterprises go, and cities flourish.
