“ A Merger That Puts New York on Top” (Mike Clough)
The merger of AOL and Time Warner Cable has brought the question of whether or not NYC will dominate the American global information economy.
AOL will control 55% of Time Warner Cable with New York being the corporate headquarters.
The merger puts AOL in the position to “reverse the erosion of New York Cities once-unquestioned position as cultural and economic center of the world’s most influential nation…”
NYC has the advantage of the location of its ports and the growing capital markets.
The key to NYC’s success has been its leaders ability to look at the future of things and use the advantages that New York has.
New York has the ability to get economic gains from developments that started in other areas.
The merger threatens the Western regions possibly having to relocate to the “Big Apple”.
Although the West coast has its advantages, Hollywood dominates the film industry and the Bay Area dominates the multimedia and digital arts, unless companies like Microsoft and Disney overcome their rivalries and work together to develop a common vision, “… New York will end, once and for all, the debate about which city will emerge as the capital of the next American Century.”
