9780061937194: The Great Reset: How New Ways of Living and Working Drive Post-Crash Prosperity

From Richard Florida, author of the bestselling books The Rise of the Creative Class and Who’s Your City?, comes a book that frames the economic meltdown of 2008–09 not as a crisis but as an opportunity to “reset.” In doing so, he paints a fascinating picture of what our economy, society, and geography will look like—of how we will work and live—in the future.

From the Back Cover:

We tend to view prolonged economic downturns, such as the Great Depression of the 1930s and the Long Depression of the late nineteenth century, in terms of the crisis and pain they cause. But history teaches us that these great crises also represent opportunities to remake our economy and society and to generate whole new eras of economic growth and prosperity. In terms of innovation, invention, and energetic risk taking, these periods of "creative destruction" have been some of the most fertile in history, and the changes they put into motion can set the stage for full-scale recovery.

In The Great Reset, bestselling author and economic development expert Richard Florida provides an engaging and sweeping examination of these previous economic epochs, or "resets." He distills the deep forces that have altered physical and social landscapes and eventually reshaped economies and societies. Looking toward the future, Florida identifies the patterns that will drive the next Great Reset and transform virtually every aspect of our lives—from how and where we live, to how we work, to how we invest in individuals and infrastructure, to how we shape our cities and regions. Florida shows how these forces, when combined, will spur a fresh era of growth and prosperity, define a new geography of progress, and create surprising opportunities for all of us. Among these forces will be

  • new patterns of consumption, and new attitudes toward ownership that are less centered on houses and cars
  • the transformation of millions of service jobs into middle class careers that engage workers as a source of innovation
  • new forms of infrastructure that speed the movement of people, goods, and ideas
  • a radically altered and much denser economic landscape organized around "megaregions" that will drive the development of new industries, new jobs, and a whole new way of life

We've weathered tough times before. They are a necessary part of economic cycles, giving us a chance to clearly see what's working and what's not. Societies can be reborn in such crises, emerging fresh, strong, and refocused. Now is our opportunity to anticipate what that brighter future will look like and to take the steps that will get us there faster.

With his trademark blend of wit, irreverence, and rigorous research and analysis, Florida presents an optimistic and counterintuitive vision of our future, calling into question long-held beliefs about the nature of economic progress and forcing us to reassess our very way of life. He argues convincingly that it's time to turn our efforts—as individuals, as governments, and as a society—to putting the necessary pieces in place for a vibrant, prosperous future.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Like the Great Depression and the Long Depression before it, experts have viewed prolonged economic downturns as crises. In The Great Reset , bestselling author Richard Florida argues that we should instead see the recent recession as an opportunity to create entirely new ways of working and living - and new economic practices that are more sustainable than current systems. Studying successful examples from the past, Florida surmises that for a reset to work, it must move beyond the limited realm of companies, business models, innovations, even public policies. It must be a rethinking of our very way of life in which we recreate and redefine the geography of capitalism. Combining academic research, real life vignettes, and historical examples, Florida identifies the four major pillars of the reset, explaining how each will lead to transformation, opportunity, and new prosperity, including: flexible housing; new and faster public transportation; more affordable consumption bundles such as food and energy; and, new jobs, industries, and sources of innovation. Going beyond economics and social geography, The Great Reset provides a new framework for understanding the roots of new growth, details the essential actions for recovery; shows the often-overlooked importance of place; and, paints a picture of what our new lives could soon look like.
