Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From Wiki:

Richard Florida (born 1957 in Newark, New Jersey) is an American urban studies theorist.

Professor Florida's focus is on social and economic theory. He is currently a professor and head of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the Rotman School of Management, at the University of Toronto.[1] He also heads a private consulting firm, the Creative Class Group.

Prof. Florida received a PhD from Columbia University in 1986. Prior to joining George Mason University's School of Public Policy where he spent two years, he taught at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College from 1987 to 2005.

Absolutely amazing what an Ivy League PhD will get you. One can only wonder what sort of economic theory he focused on. His Masters and PhD are in urban planning from Columbia. C.V. didn't say anything about economic analysis, however.
