Do you wonder about the future of the U.S. economy? What will happen to Detroit now that it’s lost much of its manufacturing base or to Phoenix, with its stunning drop in home prices? Richard Florida examines how the economy and society were reset following the depressions of the 1870s and the 1930s and what must happen now in order for us to return to prosperity. Florida’s language is clear, and Eric Conger’s deep, authoritative tone retains that lucidity and optimism. Conger’s varied inflections and measured pace keep the listener engaged as Florida argues for increasing the value of service jobs, recognizing the importance of the creative class, developing high-speed rail, and improving rental options to restore mobility for workers.
