Planet Money recently did a study of various professions, which revealed something that will surprise nobody who works as an artist or arts professional: of all career paths (if you want to call being an artist a career path), these have the worst downward mobility; i.e. artists, curators and other creative types will be the most poor relative to their parents than anybody else. Take note, aspiring MFAs!
