Have any of you read the book, or heard the wider hypothesis?
In essence, that we should pursue building communities based on attraction of the creative class. This challenges a lot of the old notions of economic development.
Many towns here in Iowa are playing a losing game trying to get an industry, etc, when maybe we should be selling the quality of life: Good schools, an adjacent State Park with a Lake, no commuting, rec trails connected to larger systems.
Interested to hear some thoughts on this.
