Review: Geeks and Rockers - Canaries of the New Economy

Would you suspect that a city's subculture of artists, geeks, gays, and rockers are key indicators of local economic development potential? Or would you put your money on measures of corporate relocations and industrial infrastructure development? If you placed your bet on the geeks and rockers, you'd be making a smart decision according to Richard Florida's latest book.

While The Rise of the Creative Class speaks directly to those who aspire to the elite rants of Top 10 status as a Creative Class hub, the ideas underlying Creative Class dynamics have important implications for entrepreneurial and grassroots activists seeking to transform and revitalize their local communities and local economies.

You don't need us to tell you that The Rise of the Creative Class is a must-read addition to your reading list. But you may want to dig into the lnks below to find out more about Creative Class dynamics "in the small" - that is, how members of rural and distressed urban communities can apply these ideas in your neighborhoods.
