The ‘two Greg Clarks’, the Right Honorable Greg Clark MP, Minister for Cities, and Greg Clark, global cities advisor, have teamed up to co-author a paper which addresses the challenges for national governments that result from globalising cities. Nations and the Wealth of Cities: A New Phase in Public Policy argues that we are beginning to see the emergence of a new phase of urban policy – a ‘systems of cities’ approach. It uses the example of the UK as a locus for a new suite of city oriented national policies and initiatives that seek to marry local leadership with national frameworks in a global system. The paper was published with the support of the Centre for London and the Global Cities Initiative (a joint project of Brookings and JP Morgan Chase).
