Airport-Based Cities & Globalization

We once built cities around harbors or railroad terminals, but cities built to take advantage of a hyper-competitive global economy are taking shape around something else: the airport. Such “aerotropolis” cities are rising around China, India, and the Middle East. Business journalist Greg Lindsay, co-author of Aerotropolis, explores how air travel and transportation are largely responsible for the shape and scope–and winners and losers–of globalization.
