Have you ever wondered what are the richest cities in the world to visit? Several specialized companies that periodically make studies to analyze which are the world’s richest cities have come up with some interesting results. For example, in 2008 Pricewater House Coopers indicated that based on statistics from the end of 2006 and with reference to the economic growth of an average of 151 cities, Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles were the richest in the world and it would remain until 2025. Within this ranking were also the following European cities. London ranked 5th, Paris ranked 6th; Moscow ranked 15th; Madrid on the 26th, and Barcelona on the 35th place.
However in early 2009 seeing that the global economic crisis had created major changes in the economy of some of the cities studied, a new study by the McKinsey Global Institute said that the economic crisis had been well faced by many Asian countries so that for example, nine of the ten cities that would record higher in the economic growth of 2025 would be in China. Research by the McKinsey Global Institute has assessed the current and future economic weight of the world’s major cities and has resulted in the following ranking of the richest cities in the world.
We find out that many of the richest cities in the world are in China. In addition, this research also indicates that by enlarging the picture we find that apart from the cities of North America, Europe, or Asia usually found in this ranking we also find an average of eight South American cities projected that over the years are to reach a better position in the ranking of the world’s richest cities. These cities are Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Lima, Bogota, Santiago and Monterrey.
