By: Richard Florida

Meeting Date: September 4, 2024 6:30 PM

Meeting Location: Olmstead Linear Park Alliance Offices

We will discuss “The New Urban Crisis,”  a book about growing inequality and isolation in cities and how greater social, educational and economic opportunity can and should be created. The author suggests ambitious reforms at the federal, state and local levels.

Florida is an economics professor and author of a popular 2002 book, “The Rise of the Creative Class.”

We will look for lessons about creating greater economic and social opportunity in Urban Atlanta.
