Richard L. Florida – Concept of Creative Class

Urban Studies theorist, Richard Florida, an American who specializes in social and economic theory. He is renowned for his concept of Creative Class and its implications for urban regeneration, which is composed of scientists and engineers, university professors, poets and architects, and also includes people in design, education, arts, music and entertainment, whose economic function is to create new ideas, new technology and creative content.

His theory asserts that the regions with high concentration of population, therefore having a high concentration of the above personnel exhibit a higher level of economic development. This theory is quite logical from a statistical point of view too, which he shows in his works where he creates his own ranking systems like, “Bohemian Index” and “Diversity Index”.
