about

'Cities in a Globalizing World' stresses that quality of governance can determine whether the burgeoning cities of the developing world can become global centers of opportunity or urban examples of over crowding and underachievement. The book examines cases where the forces of globalization, urbanizations, and governance come together most successfully. It demonstrates that services tend to be better where citizens have access to information on the budget (a measure of transparency and accountability) or where information was available on how to start a business (a measure of transparency and responsiveness to firms). The book is intended to guide city managers on various ways of enhancing services and human resources, which will, in turn, attract trade, finance, and tourism to boost economic growth.

"Cities in a Globalizing World not only raises our awareness of issues that can only become still more pressing and still more critical to growth and equity in this century; it also provides important and valuable analyses of options for public action." -- Sir Nicholas Stern
