MENDEZ, Ricardo. El territorio de las nuevas economías metropolitanas. EURE (Santiago) [online]. 2007, vol.33, n.100, pp.51-67. ISSN 0250-7161.

The recent economic changes in metropolitan regions have given rise to significant shifis in the locational strategies of firms, the spatial organisation of different activities, functions and jobs, with direct consequences for urban form. A diagnosis of the new economic geography of world cities and metropolitan regions is a key factor in shaping new economic promotion policies and urban planning. This paper offers a critical review of diverse concepts and theories relating to the recent territorial evolution of metropolitan economies, it analyses the recent trends in spatial organisation of activities, and it emphasises the strategic value of local responses in the construction of competitive and innovative cities

Keywords : metropolitan economy; urban form; location of activities; territorial models of innovation.
