From the Inside Flap
Winning Global Markets: How Businesses Invest and Prosper in the World’s High-Growth Cities is a resource for business leaders and marketing managers who want to optimize their company’s value by picking the top global urban markets in which to invest. It is also a valuable reference for political and civic leaders of global cities who must foster economic growth by attracting multinational corporation investment.
Throughout the book, leading international marketing experts Philip and Milton Kotler make a compelling case why the future of marketing must focus on top global cities and their metro regions. The large cities of the world have an 80 percent higher per-capita GDP than their host nation economies. While emerging city markets are experiencing accelerated growth, major cities in the United States and Europe are declining in population, and their consumption, trade, and investment is weakening. In the near future, 600 global cities will account for 65 percent of the global gross domestic product and 440 of these cities will be in the developing world.
As this paradigm continues to shift away from the West and toward Asia, South America, Africa, and the Middle East, the vast majority of consumer and middle-income households will be in developing regions. Savvy multinational companies will focus their attention on growing city regions in emerging markets.
Winning Global Markets offers the strategies leaders need to adapt and invest wisely, especially in the burgeoning cities of China, Brazil, India, and other rapidly growing markets.

This book is full of data, converted into information, and analysed for use in decision making . Each Chapter has a summary and
Questions for discussion- features that make this a " pharmacopoeia" for managers in international business as well as administrators of cities. The mass of data is an eye opener even for those like me who have beeen in the field of marketing for 50 years .
The book has only 8 chapters- but it is a near complete prescription which even forsees side effects, and how to prevent them .
It deals with how MNCs target global city markets; how cities compete to attract MNCs; how a nation can help city economies; the responsibilities of companies and cities; and finally how marketers can manage the city centred global economy.
The book is very current , and includes happenings in the world right up to 2013, even with complexities of doing business in India ( eg Walmart)There is, of course, additional emphasis on China- which is understandable considering the focus of Milton s work .Perhaps, some repettion of points could have been avoided.
This is a must read for managers both in MNCs and in Management of Cities, in both developed and developing countries .
A must-read book for businessmen, national and urban officials, and analysts who have long focused on the wrong paradigm.
