This book looks at the New York Metropolitan Region as an area in competition with the rest of the United States and the world. It asks: What are the Region’s strengths and weaknesses in such competition and how is the Region’s competitive position changing? In some measure, therefore, it synthesizes the findings of Made in New York, Wages in the Metropolis, Freight and the Metropolis, and Money Metropolis.

Ingenious methods of classification and analysis make this a landmark in the literature of regional economics.
