MIAMI URBAN FUTURE INITIATIVE RESEARCH REPORT | MIAMI’S NEW URBAN CRISIS
Thursday, December 7, 2017
MUFI’s latest report on “Miami’s New Urban Crisis”—written by Richard Florida, author of The New Urban Crisis and Visiting FIU Fellow—evaluates Miami’s urban and economic development challenges compared to 52 large U.S. metros with more than one million people. The report examines several dimensions of urban stress, including economic inequality, occupational segregation, income segregation, poverty, housing unaffordability, and middle class decline. “There is a downside to Miami’s urban revival,” writes Florida. “Its recent economic boom has generated a New Urban Crisis born from its very success.”
