One of the most powerful forces affecting both the City and the new learning is the global context in which both operate. Globalisation is not new, either to the City of the world of learning. Sir Thomas Gresham was as familiar with Europe’s financial centres as any of today’s City leaders. Some, at least, of his dealings originated across the Atlantic.
