Professor Tony Travers is the Direstor of LSE London, the London School of Economics' reseach centre. There are very few people more intimately acquainted with the capital.
In this Lecture, part of the Long Finance Symposium 'Measuring Up Cities', Professor Travers looks at the history of competition between cities. He also introduces the forms of data that can be collected to compare cities, as well as the intangibles that might be essential for success in competitive cities.
