THE NEW URBAN CRISIS How Our Cities Are Increasing Inequality, Deepening Segregation, and Failing the Middle Class-- and What We Can Do About It

by | Read by Traber Burns

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The author of THE RISE OF THE CREATIVE CLASS delves into the economic complexities of cities and how they perpetuate both opportunity and inequality through various practices and policies. Traber Burns does an admirable job narrating a work that grapples with being engaging. Florida's analysis is fascinating as he articulates the growing tension between the working class and the creative class, while providing insights into the growing populist movement that gave rise to Trump. But the work is filled with an abundance of numerical data in the form of statistics, charts, and quantitative comparisons. With his slightly raspy voice, Burns does the best he can with such information overload, using good pacing and emphasis to make the prose as clear and easy to follow as possible.
