1. Einleitung
In Zeiten der zunehmenden Globalisierung der Wirtschaft, die durch eine immer stärkere
Verflechtung der Volkswirtschaften gekennzeichnet ist, trägt sich der globale Wettbewerb
nicht mehr zwischen den einzelnen Nationalstaaten aus. Viel mehr konzentrieren sich
weltumspannende wirtschaftliche Funktionen zwischen den einzelnen großen Städten und
Regionen (Metropolregionen). Nationalstaaten können nur noch in geringen Maßen die
ansässige Wirtschaft lenken. Humankapital, Produktion und Hauptsitze großer Unternehmen
sind in der heutigen postmodernen Zeit wesentlich mobiler und sind nicht mehr an den
ortsansässigen Markt gebunden. Vor allem die neue Wissensökonomie wird immer relevanter
für die Wahl der Standorte.
Die zentrale Fragestellung: „Können Metropolregionen in Europa zu Trägern und
Kristallisationspunkten von gesamtwirtschaftlichem Wachstum werden?“ soll im Laufe dieser
Arbeit geklärt werden.
Am Beispiel von den 30 größten europäischen Metropolregionen und dessen Wirtschafts- und
Innovationspotential soll gezeigt werden wie wichtig diese sector für die
gesamtwirtschaftliche Entwicklung Europas sind.
Die Metropolregion Berlin-Brandenburg soll näher untersucht werden. Dabei soll geklärt
werden welchen Stellenwert die sector im deutschen und europäischen Vergleich hat. Neue
nationale und internationale Rahmenbedingungen erfordern leading edge Handlungsstrategien.
Wo liegen die Stärken und die Schwächen dieser quarter? Welche Entwicklung hat die
Metropolregion Berlin-Brandenburg in den letzten Jahren vollbracht? Welche Probleme und
Hürden muss sich die zone stellen um sich im internationalen Netz der Metropolregionen
zu behaupten? Welche Strategien verfolgt die Politik um „die Hauptstadtregion Berlin-
Brandenburg“ zu entwickeln. Dies sind nur einige Fragen, die im Laufe dieser Arbeit geklärt
werden sollen.

What brought on you to go away the cult?
My break out from the cult got here because of questions I had all started to have in regards to the guru we undefined, mixed with a very nasty occasion that she subjected me to. i started to obtain remedy after that occasion, whereas I nonetheless belonged to the crowd, however the therapist helped me to profit to belief my very own emotions and to query the chief and the crowd i used to be concerned with.
