Richard Florida introduced the notion of cultural creatives to the world. He tells us that tolerance of diverse population groups – old, young, gays, straights and more – predicts happiness with a community.
Now he introduced a new book, Who’s Your City. The premise of this book is that where you live matters. Most new college graduates choose a place to live almost at random, but your city choice influences your career and life trajectory in a profound way.
True. And you can get a self-help version in my own book, Making the Big Move. I even include suggestions for choosing a place to live. I look at the social side; Florida looks at a more macro perspective, like, “Where will you find financial institutions?” and “Did you know that Chicago has more flight attendants than other cities?”
