"The New Urban Crisis" by Richard Florida.

Fifteen years ago, Richard Florida wrote about the rise of the creative class, and how it could help revitalize American cities.

Now, the urbanist is looking at another side of that in his new book, "The New Urban Crisis."

Richard Florida joins me via Skype.
