Summary:
  • "In the ground breaking Rise of the Creative Class, Richard Florida introduced the United States to the rules of engagement in the creative age. The Flight of the Creative Class takes Florida's arguments to the next level, explaining how the same conditions that affect regional economic development, talent exchange, and the unleashing of human creativity play out on the world stage." "He sees cause for concern for the United States - a country long accustomed to its comfortable position at the helm of the global economy - and pockets of potential opening up from Sydney, Shanghai, and Amsterdam to Dublin, Bangalore, and Toronto.".
  • "But the United States still boasts one of the most diverse and creative citizenries in the world, and Florida points out that if it can discover solutions to address rising inequality, the global dissemination of talent, and the inherent tensions of the creative age, it will once again lead the pack. If only the rest of the world doesn't discover those solutions first."--BOOK JACKET.
