Boston Ties for 11th on List of World's Most Economically Powerful Cities

The Atlantic is kicking off a new series looking at “the past and future of the world’s global capitals” by crunching the five key rankings from research teams, think tanks, and global consulting firms — the Martin Prosperity Institute’s Global Economic Power Index, The Economist‘s Global City Competitiveness Index, AT Kearney’s Global Cities Index, the McKinsey Global Institute’s Global City GDP 2025, and the Global Financial Centers Index — and coming up with, essentially, a ranking of rankings. Boston tied with Seoul and Beijing for 11th; NYC topped the list, followed by London, Tokyo, Paris and Hong Kong (tie for fourth), Chicago, Singapore, Shanghai, L.A., and Zurich.  [The Atlantic]
