Keywords: Richard Florida

"Market value in the knowledge economy is driven by creative energy in the workforce. In his groundbreaking 2002 bestseller The Rise of the Creative Class, prize-winning economist Dr. Richard Florida profiled the characteristics of creative knowledge workers, and introduced strategies for attracting and leading them successfully. With The Flight of the Creative Class, Florida addresses global competition and what countries and corporations must do to thrive in the knowledge economy. Called a 'national cultural guru,' by the Boston Globe, Florida has become a leader in the international debate about the causes and consequences of economic growth, as well as an important thought leader for organizations worldwide."
