A bracingly original work of research and analysis, The New Urban Crisis offers a compelling diagnosis of our economic ills and a bold prescription for more inclusie cities capable of ensuring growth and prosperity for all. 

In recent years, the young, educated, and affluent have surged back into cities, reversing decades of suburban flight and urban decline. An yet all is not well. In The New Urban Crisis, Richard Florida, one of the first scholars to anticipate this back-to-the-city movement in his groundbreaking The Rise Of The Creative Class, demonstrates how the same forces that power urban growth also generate cities' vexing challenges, such as gentrification, segregation, inequality, and unafforbadle housing. Middle-class neighborhoods are disapeparing as our cities and suburbs are carved into small areas of privilige surrounded by vast swaths of poverty and disadvantage. The rise of a winner-take-all ubanism represents a proufound crisis of today's urbanized knowledge economy that threatens our economic future.
