Global Cities: The urban economic landscape in 2040

The population living in the world’s 900 major cities has risen by more than 600 million over the last 20 years and we project a similar increase by 2040. But future growth trends vary significantly across the world, which will cause a further shift in the economic power of cities by 2040. In this webinar, we will present which cities are leading the race to join today’s urban superpowers at the top of the rankings, as well as other highlights from our annual Global Cities release based on new research into harmonised city definitions.

Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for APAC, EMEA and Americas friendly time zones:

  • APAC – Tuesday 30th November | 10:00 HKT
  • EMEA – Tuesday 30th November | 10:00 GMT
  • Americas – Tuesday 30th November | 16:00 EST

Inflation et croissance, meilleurs ennemis ?

Tirée par le conflit Ukrainien et le confinement Chinois, la vague inflationniste est partie pour durer. Mais jusqu’à quand? L’impulsion donnée par la fin (temporaire) du Covid sera-t-elle suffisante pour soutenir la croissance, en France et dans le monde, alors que les politiques monétaires se resserrent et la confiance chute ?
