Example text

We conducted extensive fieldwork in Accra and Mumbai between 1998-2000, and assembled data sets on foreign and domestic corporations, their year of establishment, main activity, address, and size. This chapter reports on our research findings. We argue that there have been profound changes in recent times that were neither random nor accidental. We explain the main trends in Accra and Mumbai in terms of the changing linkages to the world economy since the implementation of liberalization policies.

Third, the former native CBD became increasingly characterized by small-scale businesses, as larger companies moved to the emerging national CBD (the former European CBD). As a result of massive rural-urban migration in the post-independence years, the density and congestion in this area kept increasing. Further, in the absence of the kinds of strict zoning policies from the colonial era and as a result of the spillover of excessive growth in the former native town, the boundary with the former European CBD became increasingly blurred.

Third, we describe our data and methodology. Fourth, in accordance with our historical approach we provide a brief overview of Accra and Mumbai during colonial times and since independence. Fifth, we concentrate on highlighting the key urban changes since liberalization. We conclude by proposing a model for the global era that may have relevance for cities throughout the lesser-developed world. THE LITERATURE ON POST-COLONIAL CITIES The relevant literature can be divided in three parts: first, a recent theoretical literature on cities and globalization; second, a more established, empirically-oriented, tradition of studies of “Third World cities;” and, finally, a specialized literature on urban spatial modeling.
