Mind and Bridge the City-Country Gap: Do We Even Need It?

This talk will look why some large cities are driving their countries forward and why others are not. How do we measure this discrepancy? Is there an upward or a downward trend in city-country inequality?

  • Large cities are driving their countries forward. It is, therefore, arguably a reality that the standard of living in capital cities and major megalopolises is higher than that of the rest of a country. However, this is not the case for a small number of countries.

    So how do we measure this discrepancy? Is there an upward or a downward trend in city-country inequality? Is there a limit? Should national policies address this gap? These pressing questions will be discussed in this talk, which will build on an empirical study of 60+ global cities from around the world, including both developed and developing countries.
