The Lord Mayor's Annual Lecture, on 'Tomorrow's Cities', will form the opening keynote speech for the symposium on 'Measuring Cities'.
In co-operation with Dr Laura Davison's lecture, this part of the symposium attempts to propose some practical techniques to identify and measure change within local economies and cities in particular.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/introduction-to-long-finance-symposium-measuring-up-cities
