Urban Strategies and Business Strategies
Jean Haentjens describes the complex symbiosis between business and the city – the prince and the merchant – due to the different logics which animate them: one of them focused on a place and the other on linkages and flow.
He shows the essential role which businessmen have played in the rise of cities and, on the other side, the factors which have determined the attractiveness of urban regions. But he also underlines that the city is more than a by-product of commercial exchange and that quite different strategies can be adopted.
