Competitive Cities: What we can measure and What we can't
Travers, T. (Tony) (2014-03)
In this Lecture, part of the Long Finance Symposium 'Measuring Up Cities', Professor Travers looks at the history of competition between cities. He also introduces the forms of data that can be collected to compare cities, as well as the intangibles that might be essential for success in competitive cities. Professor Tony Travers explores how Cities compete against each other in the global marketplace. He discusses what measures Cities have taken for greater economic, political and cultural influence, and how economists track the levels of change.
