Richard Florida: How the "great reset" has changed the country

Author and urban theorist, Richard Florida's book The Great Reset said new economies often rise from the ashes of the old ones bringing with them new types of growth and prosperity. Florida writes in a recent piece in The Atlantic that Great Resets unfold not from top-down policies and programs but gradually, as millions upon millions of people respond to challenging economic times by changing the ways that they live. So what about a place like Las Vegas that has been slow to recover? Richard Florida joins us to discuss how the future economy will shape Las Vegas and how the country has changed since the recession began.
