New York and London Top 2012 Cities of Opportunity Study of Global Economic Leaders

New York and London Top 2012 Cities of Opportunity Study of Global Economic Leaders
Though New York and London lead cumulative scoring, emerging cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, are narrowing the gap within key economic indicators, according to the fifth edition of Cities of Opportunity released today by PwC and the Partnership for New York City.

While New York officially edges out London by one point across 10 economic indicators, the city wins in no individual category. Toronto, which finishes third, also shows great balance yet wins no category. London, however, takes the lead in "city gateway," an indicator introduced this year that measures global interconnectedness and international attraction. Rounding out the leaders are Paris, which advances four spots from 2011 to number four, and Stockholm at number five. Available content includes general views and still images.
