Research topic : Synergies from Geographic Clustering of Creative Workers

This research utilizes a unique and comprehensive dataset of highly creative and successful individuals, focusing on prominent Western literary artists.  This research aims to explore the relationship between geographic clusters of creative individuals and individual success.  This research also aims to provide greater insight into the elasticity of creative supply in terms of how creative output varies with respect to various factors, such as peer networks, social conflict, technological innovations (resulting in lower cost/greater efficiency of production of literary material), etc.
