Creativity isn’t a theory about hipsters and the latte set. The key driver of a resilient economy is the same thing that binds us as humans – our shared creativity. Hazel Borys reviews Richard Florida's latest creative culture ideas.

"What we are living thru is the failure of the suburban growth model — the primary reason for the global financial crisis. The creative revolution is complete. The urban revolution — the way of life revolution — is just beginning."

Borys reviews Florida's recent thoughts on moving from a creative class to a creative culture.
