Say what? To me global city isn't synonymous with full of college educated people. They also attract immigrants from around the world who may have little more than a willingness to work hard.

Many of Chicago's "non-glittering" neighborhoods are full of folks like these. They aren't just to be understood as a bunch of hopeless high school drops, and are as much a part of a global city as the frequent fliers.

You really do disservice by conflating all "non-global" (to paraphrase your wording) neigborhoods into a "great swatch" of the "inner city" as one thing.
