Item description for Leading Cities Of The World And Their Competitive Advantages by Harry Grosveld...
In a globalizing world, with borders becoming blurred and international competition increasing, cities need to be constantly aware of their own international competitive position. Whereas enterprises can strengthen their position through takeovers, mergers, or joint ventures, cities cannot. Cities can only try to make the most of their competitive advantages. A city with international ambitions has to be able to face the challenge of international competition, and therefore must have insight into its international profile. Which local factor makes cities important, prominent, trend setting, leading? For the national level, Michael Porter paved the way with his standard work The Competitive Advantages of Nations (1990), in which he introduced his famous 'national diamond'. Surprisingly, though, no such substantial research exists on cities, let alone that a 'city diamond' has been developed.
