The AA. pursues the idea that large and small metropolitan areas are subject to different dynamics. This idea is considered in the light of the emerging cognitive-cultural economy in the USA. One main body of empirical evidence is focused on manufacturing sectors and the objective is to reveal the basic dimensions of locational sorting across the hierarchy. The other revolves around occupational groupings. Competitive advantages of large and small metropolitan areas are presented.
