Cím:Cities as command and control centres of the global economy: an empirical industry-specific analysis / György Csomós
Megjegyzések:Major cities of the global economy can be identified on the basis of Friedmann's world city hypothesis on the one hand, and Sassen's global city theory on the other hand. However, there is a significant difference between these two approaches in that the former primarily focuses on the concentration of multinational corporations (MNCs) in world cities, while according to the latter, global cities are the post-industrial focal points of advanced producer service firms and financial services companies. In recent years global city theory has become more widespread, and MNCs in general have lost their significance regarding the designation of leading cities in the global economy. However, a new tendency has started to emerge: While international financial markets have been ruled by some global cities for decades, powerful MNCs have been established in major cities of emerging economies. This has resulted in a heavy competition on developing markets, primarily in Africa, Latin-America, and Asia, between companies of the developed countries and those of the emerging economies. Thus, the global economy witnesses the birth of new command and control centres, and for this reason it is reasonable to return to Friedmann's world city concept.In this empirical analysis I rank cities on the basis of the financial performance of MNCs that they host. My main aim is to examine the power of cities in different industry sectors and create a new urban hierarchy.
