Womp womp, despite the “internationalism” of the Expo, Shanghai didn’t manage to break the top ten of Foreign Policy Magazine’s Global Cities Index, which ranks cities on several criteria – their influence, culture, innovation and so on. In fact, we were even beat out by Beijing, who at No. 15, was five spots ahead of our No. 20! Our “economic rival/sister,” Hong Kong, was way ahead at No. 5. Oh the shame! That having been said, judging from the comments on the site, all of this is contestable – Sure we can admit that New York, London and Sydney are all more “global” than we, but Boston? Really?
