Global Metro Summit Conference Guide

The following conference guide is a summary of conference materials prepared by the Metropolitan Policy Program at The Brookings Institution and LSE Cities at the London School of Economics and Political Science for the 2010 Global Metro Summit in Chicago. 

The partnership conducted new research that carefully analysed and dissected thousands of pieces of data to understand the performance of 150 cities and metros in today’s global economy. Our findings confirmed that the worldwide downturn and nascent recovery are shifting the metro map of economic growth away from European and U.S. cities toward cities in Asia and Latin America. The full findings can be found in our Global Metro Monitor report.
