Some scholars question whether the city still exists. Arrango (1970:65) acknowledged this when he mentioned more than thirty years ago that ‘the typical American city is not, in fact, a city; it is a pan urban region, a conglomeration of cities, suburbs, and semi-urbanized areas loosely set together, among which there is little social unity’. This idea suggests the possibility and probability that many problems facing cities are no longer purely local problems. Instead, many of the problems are regional in nature.
Today, the production and transmission of information or knowledge are prime factors enabling cities and regions to innovate and grow. Distance no longer remains as a major impediment or obstacle to an area’s growth. Markets can be anywhere. They can be thousands of miles from the home business or industry.
