Who's Your City?: How the Creative Economy is Making the Place Where You Live the Most Important Decision of Your Life. Dr. Richard Florida. 2008.

- It's a mantra of the age of globalization that where you live doesn't matter: you can telecommute to your high-tech Silicon Valley job, a ski-slope in Idaho, a beach in Hawaii or a loft in Chicago; you can innovate from Shanghai or Bangalore. According to Richard Florida, this is wrong. Place is not only important, it's more important than ever.

- New frameworks, cutting-edge analysis, and innovative policy solutions show how the nation's government, business, civic, and community leaders can sculpt a sustainable and supportable economy for older industrial areas. The unique focus on rehabilitating weak market cities outlines ideas and addresses challenges for reshaping the role of public agencies, the workforce, business organizations, and technology.
