Richard Florida: Sorry Not Sorry

Yesterday in class you discussed Richard Florida’s concept of creative class. His latest book, The New Urban Crisis, has been described as a continuation of his ‘flawed and elitist ideas.’ Another review, in The Jacobin, states that the author ‘has replaced his airy projections of infinite, creativity-fueled growth with a tone of apocalyptic darkness.’ If you’d like to listen to ‘one of the world’s leading urbanists’ (in his own words) speak about the new book, check out his LSE lecture.
