Who's your City? How the Creative Economy Is Making Where to Live the Most Important Decision of Your Life - Richard Florida


Book asserting the theory that metropolitan regions with high concentrations of high-tech workers, artists, musicians, lesbians and gay men, and a group described as "high bohemians", correlate with a higher level of economic development. Florida posits the theory that the creative class fosters an open, dynamic, personal and professional environment. This environment, in turn, attracts more creative people, as well as businesses and capital. He suggests that attracting and retaining high-quality talent, versus a singular focus on infrastructure projects such as sports stadiums, iconic buildings, and shopping centers, would be a better primary use of a city's regeneration resources for long-term prosperity.
