The Flight of the Creative Class

Intriguing findings and arguments by Richard Florida in this follow up book to "The Rise of the Creative Class".

I like the part where he argues that if we "[p]ut these three ideas together -- that creativity is the most important source of wealth in the modern world, that every human being is creative, and that people everywhere place a high value on engaging creative work -- and you begin to see the scope of the [economic] transformation." The book seems primarily addressed to U.S. audience though.

Would be interesting to think about and see this happen in emerging economies in a slightly different way (Read: Bottom-up)
