"Richard Florida offers a brilliant assessment of the varied and evolving challenges facing our cities today.... The New Urban Crisis is essential reading for urban leaders and all city-dwellers." --Richard M. Daley, former mayor of Chicago
In The New Urban Crisis, Richard Florida demonstrates how the forces that drive urban growth also generate cities' challenges, such as gentrification, segregation, and inequality. We must rebuild cities and suburbs by empowering them to address their challenges. The New Urban Crisis offers a compelling diagnosis of our economic ills and a bold prescription for more inclusive cities capable of ensuring prosperity for all.
