Issue 44 - 01 | A Creative Manifesto: Why the Place You Choose to Live is the Most Important Decision of Your Life

By Richard Florida
Published March 7, 2008 11:55 p.m.
“Increasingly, the place you choose to live will help determine your success in business, in finding a life partner, and in living a fulfilling life. In fact, it may be the most important decision of your life. I believe that we are in the beginnings of a shift as fundamental as the industrial revolution was over a century ago—one that will have as dramatic an impact on how people live and work. Furthermore, it will have a dramatic impact on where they live and work.”
