Global City (Anteria)
Since 1994, the University of TBD has complied the Global Cities Index, which is used to describe the influence of a city on the world stage. This is a domestic list.
A global city, also called a power city, world city, alpha city or world center, is a city which is a primary node in the global economic network. The concept comes from geography and urban studies, and the idea that globalization is created and furthered in strategic geographic locales according to a hierarchy of importance to the operation of the global system of finance and trade. The most complex node is the "global city", with links binding it to other cities having a direct and tangible effect on global socio-economic affairs. Competing groups have petitioned the University of TBD to include their own criteria. Cities can fall from ranking, as in the case of cities that have become less cosmopolitan and less internationally renowned in the current era.
Currently, The University of TBD's Global Cities Index divides cities into Alpha +, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon cities.
|Alpha ++||Alpha ++ level cities are the three most major cities linked to into the world economy and culture, filling advanced service needs.|
|Alpha +, Alpha, and Alpha -||Alpha level cities are linked to major economic states and regions and into the world economy and culture, filling advanced service needs.|
|Beta +, Beta, and Beta -||Beta level cities are cities that link moderate economic regions to the world economy and culture.|
|Gamma +, Gamma, and Gamma -||Gamma level cities are cities that link smaller economic regions into the world economy and culture.|
|Delta +, Delta, Delta -||Delta level cities are cities that have a sufficient degree of services so as not to be entirely dependent on world cities.|
