Creative Class[edit]

The concept of a creative class was developed by American social scientist Richard Florida. According to Florida, the creative class is the driving force for the development of post-industrial cities in the United States, comprising about forty million workers that Florida divides in two broad sections, the super-creative core and the creative professionals. The super-creative core comprises around twelve percent of all US jobs, including science, engineering, computer programming, research, arts, design and media, while the creative professionals are knowledge- based workers, mostly university-educated.
