Richard Florida

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Richard Florida was interviewed by Scott Simon for NPR’s Weekend Edition today. I don’t want to dwell too much on nothing at all, but Florida summarized his misconception when he said that the question Obama must answer is how capitalism is to develop into the future. Florida’s plan is that we will not own houses because we will be meeting the labor market of the future by being super mobile, and therefore happier as renters.

That Obama is publically construed as rightfully some champion of capitalism, rather than of the Constitution, or of the people, is signal.

The pushing of the idea that the citizenry should become nomads in pursuit of the green pastures of corporate designs is offensive.
