This HBR article by Li Jin talks about how the creative economy on platforms like YouTube and Instagram look a lot like the U.S. economy (and I’d wager – from my experience – also other (inter)national economies too). Jin says there are a few big winners but a lot of people hustling to make a living and barely getting by and, she writes, it doesn’t have to be like this. I agree.

As always, thanks for reading!
