Abstract

The following is a joint report from Internet Association and National League of Cities on the future of cities in the digital economy. The report examines the current state of ‘new economy’ jobs from the Internet sector in US cities and then examines the policies and approaches of four case study cities – Columbus, OH; Kansas City, MO; Phoenix, AZ; and Pittsburgh, PA. The purpose of the report is to highlight and draw lessons from cities that are actively pursuing a greater integration of technology into their economies, environments, and policymaking. The report specifically looks at ‘up-and-coming’ tech cities rather than more established hubs like Seattle or Silicon Valley.

Keywords: urban policy, technology policy, planning, development

JEL Classification: O1, O21, O32
