Importantly, lowering the costs of arbitrage between markets subject to third degree price

As Germany does not have the equivalent of a (capital) primate city like Paris in France or London in the United Kingdom, it does not have what could be described as a ‘truly’ global city, and thus its geo-economic reach in the world economy is spread between several domestic cities rather than being channelled through one or two geo-economic powerhouses (including all the agglomeration economies that follow in the material and immaterial spheres of capital and labour). The complexities of the German urban system, therefore, and their place in the ever

regional features which apparently strengthen the region's resilience. 2 Macroeconomic Constraints of Regional Development in Poland The crisis triggered by the 'dot-com bubble' in the years 2000–2002 caused a larger decrease in the gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate of the relatively weak Polish economy than in other EU countries.
