|Economists believe that cities and metropolitan areas stimulate economic growth through virtuous circles of attracting population, densifying space, fostering innovation, specialization, and social and economic profitability of public and private investments. However, urbanized knowledge capitalism is also producing growing inequality within global cities themselves and between globalization winners and losers. The theoretical foundations and practices of the emerging Community Wealth Building movement are explained as an alternative framework of economic justice in unequal cities and some success stories in the US and the UK. For the city of Madrid, the existing inequality is shown according to generic indices and also split by districts and administrative neighborhoods. Next, the local assets are mapped, as well as the already existing programs that can be assimilated to a greater or lesser extent with Community Wealth Building policies, even if they do not bear that name. After some consultations with stakeholders of territorial levelling up and social economy policies, we proceed to assess the options for its progressive implementation in the city of Madrid or its metropolitan belt. We end with an action guide for local leaders interested in economic innovation and for the benefit of its most disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
