Report highlights cities set to succeed - and struggle
18 January, 2010
Cities with highly educated workforces, like Cambridge and Edinburgh, are well-placed to bounce back from recession, says a report by the independent think-tank Centre for Cities.

The gap between the top and bottom of the economic rankings is also growing, it added. The Cities Outlook 2010 study assesses 64 of the UK's cities and towns over the past two years and predicts an "uneven recovery".
It notes that London, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester accounted for 39% of all jobs in England in 2008. Report highlights cities set to succeed - and struggle.
