41 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 2,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Millions of Americans are beginning to work and live the way creative people like artists and scientists always have - and as a result our values and tastes, our personal relationships, our choices of where to live, and even our sense and use of time, are changing. Leading the shift are the nearly 38 million Americans in many diverse fields who create for a living - the Creative Class. The first person to name this revolution was renowned urban studies theorist Richard Florida." "In The Rise of the Creative Class, Florida chronicles the ongoing sea change in people's choices and attitudes and describes a society in which the creative ethos in increasingly dominant. With updated city rankings and a new preface, this is the national bestseller that swept the country and showed how the very future of our cities depends on a new economic class."--Publisher description

The flight of the creative class : the new global competition for talent by Richard L Florida( Book )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, the United States is in danger of losing its most crucial economic advantage--its status as the world's greatest talent magnet, argues economist Florida. Where America was once the first destination for foreign students and the last stop for scientists, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs wishing to engage in the most robust and creative economy on the planet, it has now become only one place among many where cutting-edge innovation occurs. Burgeoning global technology hotspots, from Sydney, Shanghai, and Amsterdam to Dublin, Bangalore, and Toronto; the outsourcing of ingenuity; rising intolerance; a faltering education system; cities torn by inequality; disconnected political leadership--all point to the looming creativity crisis that is causing the decline of American economic might. But if the United States can discover solutions to address these problems, it will once again lead the pack. If only the rest of the world doesn't discover those solutions first

11 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the results of the comparative study are surprising. For example, contrary to common assumptions, collaboration between individual faculty members and colleagues in industry appears to be as high in Japan as it is in the United States. It also becomes clear that it is the pace of technological change, more than government incentives, that puts universities in the position of driving the most exciting areas of business growth. Finally, although universities are vital to the networks that lead to innovation-based growth, experience in both Japan and the United States suggests that policies aimed at transforming economically depressed areas through the promotion of university-based ventures are difficult to implement when the environment for economic transformation is weak

SynergiCity : reinventing the postindustrial city by Paul Hardin Kapp( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After World War II, the industrial bases of many cities have shrunk or moved elsewhere, turning large parts of once thriving cities into vacant lots and empty shells. Despite sobering statistics about the decline of the industrial Midwest, economists, urban planners, and sociologists are optimistic that the post-industrial city can reinvent itself. SynergiCity: The Architecture of the Post-Industrial City proposes a new vision of urbanism, architectural design, and urban revitalization in the United States in the twenty-first century, with a particular emphasis on the industrial Midwest. It offers an remedy for the decline of the post-industrial city drawing on successes in a number of major cities and on expertise from a variety of fields and methodologies. The authors contend that industrial cities like Peoria, Detroit, Saint Louis, must continually redefine themselves if they expect to attract a new creative class of residents and compete globally. One of the project's driving questions is, "What architectural form will this new innovation economy take in the rust-belt cities of the Midwest?" The contributors and editors of this book have developed design principles to promote the innovation necessary to transform cities like Peoria for the new economy, based on findings from similar case studies of similar cities and developments (including the American Tobacco District in Durham, NC; the Warehouse District of New Orleans, the Milwaukee River Greenway, and the Detroit Eastern Market Redevelopment District). The contributors are experts in architecture, planning, and real estate development. The book features images developed by the University of Illinois Graduate Architecture Studio, as well as relevant images from Peoria and other cities"--
The creative compact : an economic and social agenda for the creative age by Richard L Florida( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Author states it is time for a new Creative Compact - a Creative Economy analogue to the great social compact of the 1930s, 40s and 50s which expanded and accelerated the Industrial Economy and led to the great golden-age of prosperity. The Creative Compact would expand participation in the Creative Economy to industrial and service workers, leverage new private and public investment in human infrastructure, restructure education around creative endeavour, bolster universities, provide mobile benefits, recast urban policy as a cornerstone of economic policy, and ensure that America remains an open and tolerant nation. At its core, the Creative Compact would ensure the right of each and every American to fully develop and utilize their creativity and fully express their values and identity

Talent, technology and tolerance in Canadian regional development by Richard L Florida( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article examines the factors that shape economic development in Canadian regions. It employs path analysis and structural equation models to isolate the effects of technology, human capital and/or the creative class, universities, the diversity of service industries and openness to immigrants, minorities and gay and lesbian populations on regional income. It also examines the effects of several broad occupations groups - business and finance, management, science, arts and culture, education, and healthcare -- on regional income. The findings indicate that both human capital and the creative class have a direct effect on regional income. Openness and tolerance also have a significant effect on regional development in Canada. Openness toward the gay and lesbian population has a direct effect on both human capital and the creative class, while tolerance toward immigrants and visible minorities is directly associated with higher regional incomes. The university has a relatively weak effect on regional incomes and on technology as well. Management, business and finance, and science occupations have a sizeable effect on regional income; arts and culture occupations have a significant effect on technology; health and education occupations have no effect on regional income
