The Problem of Berlin

+ Attending

This second session will focus on Berlin's economy. Our readings will be:

The New Berlin (1998) by Elizabeth Strom & Margit Mayer (Seeing as we didn't get around to it the last time...) and

City of Talents: Berlin's regional economy, socio-spatial fabric and 'worst practice' urban governance (2004) by Stefan Krätke.

Have a look over the following list of top employers in the Berlin area; although it does not provide data on those employed by the city itself, it will give an idea of whom the large employers are.

As discussed in the first class it would be good if there were volunteers (a) to bring photos and (b) to provide a synopsis of the arguments contained in the two essays. In this way it will hopefully be more discursive and we can dispense with reading the materials together. In that spirit it would be great if everyone could try and isolate some questions that occur to them from the readings.
