Abstract:

[This book] gives us a ... new way to think about why we live as we do today - and where we might be headed. [In the book, the author] traces the fundamental theme that runs through a host of seemingly unrelated changes in American society: the growing role of creativity in our economy. [The book] chronicles the ongoing sea change in people's choices and attitudes, and shows not only what's happening but also how it stems from a fundamental economic change. The Creative Class now comprises more than thirty percent of the entire workforce. The choices these people make have already had a huge economic impact, and in the future they will determine how the workplace is organized, what companies will prosper or go bankrupt, and even which cities will thrive or wither.-Dust jacket.
