A recent Washington Post article.
To learn where that edge comes from, Michigan State University
observeda group of its honors college graduates from 1990 to 1995 who
majored in the STEM fields. Their research uncovered that of those
students, the ones who owned businesses or filed patents had eight
times the exposure to the arts as children than the general public.
The researchers concluded that these results are important to note in
our rebuilding of the U.S. economy. "Inventors are more likely to
create high-growth, high-paying jobs in our state and that's the kind
of target we think we should be looking for" said Rex LaMore, director
of Michigan State's Center for Community and Economic development.
