Richard Florida has initiated a study of which regions are likely to attract 'cr eative' classes. He emphasizes that if the three Ts "technology, talent and tolerance' are in place, then the region will attract highly skilled workers in creative occupations. These studies are still disputed and should probably be considered preliminary. Some of his writings are in his website:
http://www.creativeclass.org/ and a short article by him is in the October 29 issue of The New scientist ( Special issue on creativity). According to him for all the rising global prominence of Bangalore and Shanghai, these two still do relatively little at cutting edge. "In 2003, the University of California alone generated more patents than India and China". Most science advances and innovations seem to occur in a handful of cities, primarily in USA and Europe. India and China do register in economic activity but he says that India and China are becoming more divided: "as Bangalore, Hyderabad, and parts of New Delhi and Bombay pull away from the rest of the country creating destabilizing political tensions". Perhaps the recent tensions between Infosystems and ex-primeminister Gowda are an indication of this. Even though his stidies seem somewhat preliminary, his prescriptions for creative centres seem worth looking at.

This is quiet true to a certain extent. The metros (except Kolkata) and other major cities such as Pune, Hyderabad and more imporantly Bangalore are getting more over heated over the years.

I agree that we need all round growth. But I take this report with a grain of salt. This phenomena is true for all countries. When New York city , Chicago and Atlanta were booming in 1850-1950, same growth didn't happen in the hinter lands of midwest, west and south. Same thing was true for Australia and Europe. This destabilization happened in all these countries. But slowly as the prosperity spreads, an equilibrium will establish.

In post war Japan, everybody wanted to live in Tokyo and Osaka and other big cities. Probably Japan witnessed the worst form of urbanization of any country. In 1950s, in Tokyo, there used be security guards on each suburban railway station and their only job is to push people inside the wagons so that the doors were closed. Now in Japan, everybody dreams of living in rural area. So things will change over time. We cannot compare the current demographics of developed country with that of developing country.
