Richard Florida in town!


Recommended Posts

D$%# I wish I could attend his talk this week, but it's by invitation only. If anyone here is going, PLEASE give us a briefing!

I first found out about his books from this forum a couple of years back. How many of you have read his books?

It seems like he's getting his message to the right ears here locally. I just hope they (politicians, university management, developers and other movers and shakers) actually listen AND implement his recommendations.

For reference, it was discussed a bit in this thread.

Personally, I think that any attempts to lure the "creative class" without just as much emphasis on the middle class are a bit misguided. Florida also sees the value in "non-creative" industries, such as manufacturing (which is still pretty important to just about any city's economy).
