Summary
Initially published in 2002, The Rise of the Creative Class was instantly described as a classic work on the forces that were reshaping our economy, our geography, our work, and our whole way of life. In this book, the author brings all of his statistics up to date, incorporates a decade's worth of new research, and addresses his major critics. This book contains new chapters cover the global effects of the Creative Class and delve into the roles played by technology, race and poverty in perpetuating income inequality, and the pervasive influence of class throughout every aspect of society
Summary
Argues that the social changes of the past few decades have occurred by choice rather than involuntarily, citing the rise of a new creative social class that derives its identity and values from its roles as purveyors of creativity and finds its basis in the economy. Reprint. 40,000 first printing
