BEAVERSTOCK, J.V. ... et al., 2001. Comparing London and Frankfurt as world cities: a relational study of contemporary urban change. London: Anglo-German Foundation for the Study of Industrial Society.
The report examines changing relations between London and Frankfurt with
the introduction of a single European currency and the decision to
locate the European Central Bank in Frankfurt. Based on interviews with
key personnel in global financial and business service firms and
institutions in both cities, the findings support a network model of
inter-city relations, which, the authors contend, is more appropriate
than the simplistic competition model that dominates public discussion.
