  • 15. Today’s innovation districts Innovation districts maintain elements of earlier models but embody new interplays demanded by the new economies where supply chains are global “ While the marginal cost of transmitting information across geographical space has fallen significantly, the marginal cost of transmitting knowledge still rises with distance …. Therefore, the knowledge spill over benefits of clustering in cities can be large for high-value, knowledge intensive sectors.” Devolving Decision Making: Meeting the Regional Economic Challenge; The Importance of Cities to Regional Growth” London: Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, 2006 More than half of global population lives in a city City dwellers are 50% more productive than rural workers and 30% more prosperous Larger cities come up with more innovations per head than smaller ones
