Urban Production from Manufacturing to Financialisation : the Case of China

Theurillat, Thierry ; Rime, Delphine ; Crevoisier, Olivier

(Working Papers MAPS ; 1)

During the twentieth Century, urban production theories considered manufacturing as the main engine for development. Today, financialization of real estate as well as mobile consumer’s expenses have developed at a larger scale and play an increasing role.
