Sinopsis completa THE RISE OF THE CREATIVE CLASS - REVISITED y descripción
Initially published in 2002, The Rise of the Creative Class quickly achieved classic status by identifying forces and then began remodeling our economy, geography, and workplace.
Interweaving storytelling with original research, Richard Florida identified a fundamental change that links a series of seemingly unrelated changes in American society: the growing importance of creativity in people's working lives and the emergence of a class of people united by their commitment to creative work.
Millions of us were beginning to work and live in the same way that creative types like artists and scientists had always done, Florida observed, and this Creative Class was determining how the workplace was organized, which companies would prosper or go bankrupt, and even which cities would prosper.
In The Rise of the Creative Class Revisited, Florida further refines its occupational, demographic, psychological and economic profile of the Creative Class, incorporates a decade of research and adds five new chapters that cover the overall effects of the Creative Class and explore the factors that shape the "quality of place" in our changing cities and suburbs.
