Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The World is Clustered:

» The World Is Clustered from The Newest Industry
A very insightful article on the clustering of wealth and innovation around the world, riffing on a theme by Friedman. [here] I firmly believe this concept. I have lived three cluster areas -- Vancouver-Victoria, BC; San Francisco - San Jose Metro; ... [Read More]

Bill, really benefit from your post! Since I live in one of those very short peaks with low plains all around (Des Moines, Iowa), I puzzle on the work of Florida, Friedman and others. Your final metaphors are wonderful, especially about us all suffering earthquakes. I suppose everything has to be shaken once and a while so that the things that can't be shaken will become obvious.

Thank you for your comments. I'm curious as to why you puzzle over Friedman and Florida. Do they seem irrelevant to Des Moines or smaller American cities in general?

Bill, I puzzle over the implications for Des Moines. And how to apply their insights to the particulars of central Iowa. Florida has for example been a darling of the economic development community here having spoken a number of times at various venues, but I see little meaningful action being taken. For my part I have taken Ben Franklin's example of gathering like-minded together to find our own contributions to growing our economy. Again, appreciated your observations.

Thank you SO much for this post. I have this book sitting on my desk at work and now I know I must read it. Many people that I work with have read it and it really has helped to shape the way they think about things. The company I work for is highly involved in re-shaping the way that business is viewed in the global/social/economic context and I think this is a must read for me now.

Kris:

The ensemble drama about young adults growing up in Beverly Hills is a blend of romantic drama and subject matter that

crosses all cultural boundaries. The storyline has followed the Walsh family as they moved from a middle-class Midwestern

neighborhood to wealthy and glamorous Beverly Hills, maturing from high school to college students, facing new challenges as

they continue to grow and discover more about themselves and their personal ambitions. As their worlds evolve, old

friendships will be tested as new relationships develop, but no matter how complicated their worlds become, they will always

share in their strengths and experiences.
