Since the introduction of globalization to the world's markets, considerable economic power has shifted East. Economies across the world have shrunk and expanded rapidly in the face of financial crisis, political instability, increasing protectionism and shifts in consumer demand and the traditionally predictable growth models of the 20th Century will likely never be experienced again. The COVID-19 pandemic has also had a substantial effect on world economies and though rapid recovery is expected, its impact will undoubtedly be long-term.

The publisher's 'City Statistics Chartbooks' provide overview and comparisons of the leading cities.

These chartbooks are designed to be used by many different groups to develop a surface level understanding of a region, its composition and what drives it. They can be used to inform a wide range of business decisions and can provide an overview of potential target markets and audiences for new business ventures.

These charts will be beneficial to any individual or organization seeking to develop a better understanding of a particular country or region, as well as to students looking to inform research or studies or those simply seeking to further understand the global or regional economic structure.
