Ouverture de ‘Global Cities and Knowledge Management - 1’
Keywords:Global Cities, Global Markets, Knowledge Management, Knowledge Hub, Consumer Hub, Service Activities
Global markets impose an important transformation of the firms’ growth policies where innovation and imitation (of products and processes) play a primary role to meet a volatile demand. Many countries now have strong links with global corporations and within these countries most activity is concentrated in a few metropolitan areas (world cities). World cities configure aggregation-sites for knowledge-intensive businesses and for populations requiring sophisticated immaterial consumption. Large metropolitan areas of the de-materialized economy are thus assuming the dual role of knowledge creation pole (knowledge hub) and of intangible consumption pole (consumer hub).
