Quality of Life & Quality Places

Economic and cultural sage, Richard Florida, underscores the importance of place as an integral component of prosperity. He documents the shift from generations that once chased the job and landed by coincidence in a particular city to the current cohort that selects geography first and then lands the job. Our future depends on the preservation or enhancements of a wide range of integrated elements that together express the robustness of our culture and the positive perceptions of those things that make us healthy, safe, comfortable, secure and involved.
