because France has less prostitution, a smaller drugs market than UK and because Elizabeth II is richer than FHollande.

Greater Paris

Greater Paris, a front-running metropolis of the 21st century?

By Jean-Ludovic Silicani, French commissioner in charge of the State reform
L'Opinion
March 22, 2016

Paris must become "a more human metropolis, but also a more global one, with its universal values, its influence and its attractiveness".

Since the 19th century, Paris and London are vying for the title of largest metropolis of Europe. Today they are in a tie. That's the case in terms of population, with regard to two international criteria: the metropolitan area, that is the catchment area of a metropolis (approximately 13 million inhabitants each); the agglomeration, that is the contiguous urbanization (approximately 10 million inhabitants each). That's also the case in economic terms: behind the metropolises of Tokyo, New York, and LA, those of Chicago, Paris, and London have similar GDPs, that is to say 600 billion US dollars each. Thus, from a global quantitative point of view (population and GDP), the Parisian metropolis is, on par with London, the fourth in the world and the first in Europe. La Défense is the first dedicated business quarter in Europe, and Paris is the most important center of international arbitration in the world.

A symbol of liberty. Moreover, the Parisian metropolis is, among the "world cities", one of the few which is truly global, that is to say a political, economic, intellectual, and scientific capital. It shares this characteristic only with Tokyo and London. Paris hosts several large international organizations, in particular the OECD and UNESCO. Finally, let's note that the attractiveness of Paris is exceptional: first metropolis in the world for tourism, it fascinates the planet and is the symbol of the art of living and liberty.

[...]

Yet the Parisian metropolis will be able to keep its rank, prosper and shine in the world only if it accelerates its transformation. Although the administrative borders of Paris had always been enlarged along the centuries, a bewildering reform in 1964 disbanded, effective in 1968, the department of the Seine, which corresponded more or less to Paris and today's three departments of the inner suburbs. Paris became reduced to the administrative limits of the commune of the same name, with barely 2 million inhabitants, surrounded by a new wall, the Périphérique. At the same time, the Greater London was created with, at the time, seven million inhabitants. In this regard, the creation of the Greater Paris Metropolis on January 1, 2016 is a good reform, but we have to go much further. Let's start to think about it now already!

Going further, first of all, in what regards the geographic limits of Greater Paris. Taking into account the footprint of urbanization, the direction of the waterways and the great axes of communication, the natural or wooded spaces, one can identify an urbanized territory containing approximately 8 millions inhabitants, like the current Greater London, but on a surface twice smaller. This Greater Paris would thus have its borders delineated on the basis of geographic, economic, and social criteria, and not on the basis of administrative borders set more than 50 years ago. [that's a direct criticism of the Greater Paris Metropolis whose borders have been lamely aligned with the borders of the three inner suburban departments fixed in 1964, without trying to modify those borders] The Île-de-France region should in parallel be enlarged, in particular towards the north.

Going further, also, as it has been done for Greater Lyon, by simplifying the administrative structures: today five levels of local governments are superimposed on each other (communes, EPTs, departments, metropolis, region), versus two for Greater London (the metropolis, which is also a region, and its 32 boroughs plus the City of London). The [French] State will have, in parallel, to simplify the organization of its own branches/services on the territory of Greater Paris, and could transfer to the metropolis some of its responsibilities and resources.

[...]
