Chicago a Global Powerhouse

Chicago is second only to New York among American cities according to measures of ‘Global Clout‘. This according to a recent index based on cities’ results to five surveys related to global city power. This places it ahead of more populous Los Angeles! It is also ahead of Washington, DC, perhaps the world’s greatest hub for international policy creation. This is a bit surprising – but why criticize the result when it’s so good 🙂 .

Chicago also recently ranked 6th in the world according to a study in the Atlantic Magazine. Paris (5) better watch out – with a new socialist president – they may find themselves behind Chicago next year!
