Bloomberg New Economy Dynamic Cities Framework

As the future of the global economy increasingly shifts East and South, society needs a better lens to assess the world’s principal motors of growth—cities. Toward that end, the Bloomberg New Economy Cities Council presents a Dynamic Cities Framework for evaluating, tracking, and advancing the progress of New Economy cities as sustainable, vibrant, responsive hubs for talent and innovation. Since what gets measured ought to be managed, we also offer some early ideas on how to meaningfully move the needle on key metrics of dynamism.
