Just talk about hipsters and everyone takes you seriously - Undustrial

Ya, I have a chicken or egg dilemma with Mr. Florida and his "creative" class. Are creative 21-35 year olds really economic catalysts or do cities with well run economies attract the "creative" class? I have a hard time with some of the connections Mr. Florida leaps to make. A city's economy, creativity, wealth and artists have been linked for millennia (i.e., where there has been excess wealth and those willing to spend it on status, artists have thrived). I think Mr. Florida's take is just a little too simple.

His message is appealing to a lot of people though, I'll give him that and it is a positive one and that does count for something.
