60 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,505 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 )

32 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

Beyond mass production : the Japanese system and its transfer to the U.S. by Martin Kenney( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can it be that Japanese "transplant" manufacturers are succeeding on U.S. soil, where American companies have failed? Beyond Mass Production provides the first inside look at the Japanese automobile, steel, and rubber companies that are transforming America's industrial heartland. It takes the reader inside the factories, unveiling the methods and techniques Japanese companies use to produce world-class products in America with American workers." "The key, the authors argue, lies in the whole new model of organizing work and production that first emerged in Japan and is now being transferred to the United States. This new system harnesses the intellectual capabilities of all workers, from the Research and Development laboratory to the factory floor, as a source of innovation and productivity improvement. It results in a powerful integration of intellectual and physical labor that will forever transform the way work is done." "Based upon more than five years of detailed research including field studies of dozens of factories, hundreds of personal interviews, and comprehensive surveys of industrial sectors, this book offers compelling evidence of the emergence and transfer of the new system in both the traditional and heavy industries and in the new industries of high-technology age." "Beyond Mass Production offers a powerful and realistic theory of the new face of capitalism as a synthesis of intellectual and physical labor - a melding of innovation and production. In doing so, the authors go far beyond the existing theories of "post-industrialism," "post-fordism," and "flexibility."" "With a wealth of new data, maps, and straightforward examples of the kinds of changes taking place, this book provides an important new perspective for all those interested in Japanese business, industrial competitiveness, foreign direct investment, new work practices, industrial relations, and regional change."--BOOK JACKET

The new urban crisis : how our cities are increasing inequality, deepening segregation, and failing the middle class-- and what we can do about it by Richard L Florida( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the young, educated, and affluent have surged back into cities, reversing decades of suburban flight and urban decline. And yet all is not well. In The New Urban Crisis, Richard Florida, one of the first scholars to anticipate this back-to-the-city movement in The Rise of the Creative Class, demonstrates how the same forces that power urban growth also generate cities' vexing challenges, such as gentrification, segregation, inequality, and unaffordable housing. Middle-class neighborhoods are disappearing as our cities and suburbs are carved into small areas of privilege surrounded by vast swaths of poverty and disadvantage. The rise of a winner-take all urbanism represents a profound crisis of today's urbanized knowledge economy that threatens our economic future. But if this crisis is urban, so is its solution. Cities remain the most powerful economic engines the world has ever seen. The only way forward is to devise a new model of urbanism-for-all that encourages innovation and wealth creation while generating good jobs, rising living standards, and a better way of life for everyone. We must rebuild cities and suburbs for the middle class by investing in infrastructure, reforming zoning and tax laws, building more affordable housing, and further empowering cities to address their own unique challenges
Locating global advantage : industry dynamics in the international economy by Richard L Florida( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are the forces that are driving firms and industries to globalize their operations? This volume explores how specific industries have organized their global operations through case studies of seven manufacturing industries: garments and textiles, automobiles and auto parts, televisions, hard disk drives, flat panel displays, semiconductors, and personal computers. Based on long-term research sponsored by the Sloan Foundation, the chapters provide readers with a nuanced understanding of the complex matrix of factor costs, access to inimitable capabilities, and time-based pressures that influence where firms decide to locate particular segments of the value chain. The book examines globalization within the context of five factors affecting locational decisions: advances in transportation and communication; the clustering of knowledge assets; the drive to reduce cycle times; the commodification of existing products; and the relative advantages of proximity to customers. The case studies are framed by Paul Deguid’s Preface on the significance of power in value chains and Bruce Kogut’s conclusion on the importance of knowledge in locational decisions. Together, the chapters reveal a remarkable diversity of responses across industries to these forces, and suggest that any understanding of globalization must appreciate this diversity.

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"--

Talent, technology & 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
