Ten years ago, Richard Florida published his first book about how creativity was emerging as a common
element shaping America’s economy, geography,communities, and jobs. Now, in The Rise of the Creative Class: Revisited, Florida reveals updated statistics and discusses how the United States has reached a Creative Age that will be the driving force behind its economic recovery. Florida recently spoke with U.S. News about how creativity has pervaded every aspect of Americans’ lives, but has also
caused a new kind of class divide.
