Human Creativity as Capital

I think the quote that follows speaks for itself. It is from Richard Florida, author of several books including The Rise of the Creative Class, and it suggests a real opportunity for organizations and communities to attract top talent in the future ... if we are up to seizing the moment. Are you?
Florida "sees the gravitational pull away from Wall Street and toward more creative industries as part of a necessary economic recalibration.

"'The economy couldn't survive on speculation and what really amounted to advanced financial alchemy,' he said. 'We are now realizing it is our human creativity that is our real capital.'"
