  3. Un ami à moi m'a refilé ce lien. Il nous lit parfois mais n'est pas membre. Il m'a dit que ça nous intéresserait. En effet!! Bien qu'il faille toujours demeurer prudent avec ce genre d'exercice, ça détonne tout de même dans le paysage médiatique actuel concernant la circulation à Montréal!

  5. Productivity in Latin America City limits Once a source of economic dynamism, megacities risk becoming a drag on growth Aug 13th 2011 | from the print edition They could all be working instead FOUR out of five Latin Americans live in cities, compared with fewer than half of Asians or Africans. The region’s 198 biggest cities—those with more than 200,000 people—account for 60% of its economic output, with the ten largest alone generating half of that. The productivity gains that flow from bringing people together in cities have been one of the drivers of economic growth in Latin America over the past half century or more. But congestion, housing shortages, pollution and a lack of urban planning mean that Latin America’s biggest cities now risk dragging down their country’s economies, according to a report* by the McKinsey Global Institute, the research arm of McKinsey, a firm of management consultants. Until the 1970s, Latin America’s big cities led their countries’ economic development. São Paulo saw annual economic growth of 10.3% from 1920 to 1970 and Rio de Janeiro of 7%, both faster than the 6.8% notched up by Brazil as a whole over that period. But in the decade to 2008 São Paulo’s output grew only two-thirds as fast as Brazil’s, whereas Rio de Janeiro managed a pitiful 37% of the national average. Of the nine cities with the biggest economies, only Lima, Mexico City and Monterrey saw economic growth in this period that was above their countries’ norms. Some medium-sized cities—such as Curitiba and Florianópolis in Brazil, Toluca and Mérida in Mexico and Medellín in Colombia—are starting to show more dynamism than the urban behemoths. That is partly the healthy consequence of liberal economic reforms in the 1980s and 1990s: the previous policies of state-led import-substitution tended to concentrate economic activity close to the centres of political power. But McKinsey expects this trend to continue. It reckons that over the next 15 years most of the top ten cities will display below-average growth in population and output (one exception will be Rio de Janeiro, boosted by investment in offshore oil as well as the Olympic games of 2016). But other big and medium-sized cities will grow faster than the national average. Unusually early in their development, Latin America’s biggest cities may have ceased to reap economies of scale “because their institutional, social and environmental support structures have not kept up with their expanding populations,” McKinsey argues. Put more bluntly, the problem is that they are “congested, poorly planned and dangerous”. Latin America’s overall record of productivity growth is poor, thanks to a toxic mixture of burdensome regulation, a large informal economy and a lack of innovation. Given the cities’ economic weight, it is not surprising that many of the region’s wider problems are reflected there. Compared with their peers in developed countries, Latin America’s top ten cities are unsafe, suffer endemic housing shortages, poor schooling and weak health services. They are also inefficient in their energy use and waste management. For example, every dollar of GDP generated in Chile’s capital, Santiago, requires 60% more energy than a dollar of GDP generated in (much colder) Helsinki in Finland. McKinsey reckons that Bogotá needs to double its housing stock by 2025. Overcoming Latin America’s housing shortage and supplying its urban population with associated services (sewerage, water, gas and electricity) would require investment of $3 trillion by 2025. If cities are exacerbating, rather than mitigating, national ills, this may be because of a lack of urban planning. Unplanned sprawl leads to a shortage of green space, strains transport systems, and makes it hard for businesses or housing developers to find sites. All this is harder still when cities expand beyond their political boundaries, creating problems of co-ordination (Mexico City is split between the Federal District and the surrounding State of Mexico, for example). But the report also highlights some success stories. In both Monterrey and Medellín, public authorities have worked closely with the private sector to foster innovation. Along with land use, transport is the biggest headache facing city authorities. Vehicle ownership is likely to expand by 4% a year over the next 15 years, further clogging the streets. Curitiba stands out as an exception: 54% of journeys there are by public transport. The city’s pioneering bus rapid-transport system has been copied across the region—in Bogotá, Mexico City and Lima. In Bogotá the number of daily public-transport journeys is equal to 75% of the population, whereas in Santiago this number is only 50%. More is needed. Experience in Europe and Asia shows that public authorities can increase the efficiency of goods distribution in cities by getting private firms to share their lorries. And although metros are expensive, the cost of not having them may soon be even greater. * “Building globally competitive cities: The Key to Latin American Growth”. McKinsey Global Institute, 2011.

  13. Salut les filles! Bon, j'ai rien à faire donc j'ai décidé de créer un thread sur l'une de mes villes préférées. Voici la ville de Mexico, je crois que souvent on a négligé et donné d'une mauvaise réputation à cette ville (grippe porcine, violence, pollution, etc.) mais elle est quand même belle et très dynamique, il y a une infinité de choses à voire et faire. Je vous suggère donc, que la prochaine fois que vous preniez un vol à Cancun ou Puerto Vallarta, arretez pour quelques jours à la ville de Mexico Un peu d'information: Mexico (en espagnol ciudad de México [littéralement: ville de México]) est la capitale du Mexique. C'est la ville la plus peuplée du Mexique. Elle est située dans le centre du pays, dans la vallée de Mexico, un plateau d’une altitude de 2 250 mètres, entouré de sommets qui le surplombent à plus de 5 000 mètres au-dessus du niveau moyen de la mer. Fondée en 1325 par les Mexicas (Aztèques), la ville précolombienne de Tenochtitlán a été entièrement détruite par les conquérants espagnols au début du XVIe siècle. Cette agglomération est devenue, avec une population estimée à environ 20 millions d'habitants, la deuxième du monde derrière Tokyo. Centre politique, économique et culturel du Mexique, Mexico est l’une des métropoles les plus dynamiques d’Amérique latine avec São Paulo au Brésil. Le tremblement de terre du 19 septembre 1985 qui secoua la capitale mexicaine, d'une magnitude de 8,1 sur l'échelle de Richter (8.5 effondrerait la tour CN) , dura deux minutes. Avec sa réplique qui eut lieu le lendemain (7,5 sur l'échelle de Richter), il fit entre 10 000 et 50 000 morts. 412 immeubles ont été entièrement détruits et 5 000 à 9 000 bâtiments ont été endommagés et il reste encore de nombreuses séquelles, comme les immeubles abandonnés autour du parc de l'Alameda. Les dégâts se concentrent dans les quartiers centraux, sur une superficie de 40 km² (4 % de l’espace urbanisé en 1980). Le quartier des ministères, entre autres, a été sévèrement touché. Une partie de l'immeuble des télécommunications s'est effondrée. Plus de 100 000 logements sont détruits, surtout dans les immeubles de plus de 6 étages. Le séisme a été considéré par certains Mexicains comme une punition divine. Son épicentre se trouvait pourtant à 400 km de Mexico. Milliers ont aussi quitté la ville à cause du tremblement (en incluant ma famille). Voilà pourquoi on ne trouve pas de gratte-ciels de 300+ m dans la ville, on se souvient encore de cette catastrophe, mais la ville commence a renaitre et construire vers le ciel, en 2003 la Torre Mayor (Tour Majeure) est inauguré comme l'un des édifices plus hauts de l'Amérique Latine (225m) et aussi comme l'un des plus solides du monde avec 98 amortisseurs séismiques , capable de résister un séisme de 9.0 sur l'échelle de Richter. Beaucoup de projets sont en train d'être construits en incluant quelques plus hauts que la Torre Mayor. Note: le thread originel sur SSC a commencé en 2007, donc les premières photos sont un peu vieilles alors elles peuvent ne pas inclure de nouveaux édifices, surtout dans le centre financier Santa Fe qui est en transformation constante. Je vais essayer de nommer les sites les plus populaires, la ville est si géante que il y a beaucoup de places que je ne connais pas (faut dire que je ne viens pas de la ville de Mexico lol) Merci pour les photos à Rey_Arturo, elbart89, marte, ChrisLifeStyle et plusieurs autres de SSC. Alors on commence dans le prochain post. !
