Interview "Creative Cities at Crossroads": Richard Florida

Cities that are attractive to the creative class don’t just receive benefits, but also face new challenges, the main one being economic and social inequality. Richard Florida notes that creativity and innovation only improve the quality of life for a small percentage of people — those lucky enough to have money and education, while other citizens become poorer and are displaced from the city center to the outskirts.
