Half the world’s population is now urban.
And as the worldwide shift from rural to urban continues, the influence of the world’s cities will continue to grow as well. But which cities are the most influential?
Foreign Policy magazine, management consulting firm A.T. Kearney, and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs recently posted an updated Global Cities Index, their second such collaboration. From the Foreign Policy website:
“So what makes a Global City? Not size alone, that’s for sure… Instead, the index aims to measure how much sway a city has over what happens beyond its own borders—its influence on and integration with global markets, culture, and innovation…”
Given this criteria, which of the following cities do you think topped the list: Paris, Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong, or London?
