How Many Jobs are there in the App-Economy?

February 9, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Mike Mandel was asked to figure out how many jobs were available in today’s “App-Economy” his findings include:

  • Official statistics from the government were unhelpful because the App Economy is dynamic and ever-evolving.
  • Using his own measure, Mandel estimates that there are now over 450,000 App jobs in the United States. This started from 0 in 2007.
  • Mandel argues that since the App Economy added a significant amount of jobs during a recession, it is likely that it is an industry that will boom even faster as the economy recovers.
