The Most Dynamic Cities of 2025 | Foreign Policy

I think the Foreign Policy folks would have had a better list if they looked at the entire bay. This was done by % growth.

Not a bad list. For the US Cities its just MSAs ranked by what this think tank thinks future population and GDP growth rates will be. That's all.

The problem that arises in all of these rankings is they title them in ways that really dont describe what the ranking is.

Yeah pretty much. Instead of saying those will be the most dynamic cities in 2025 they could have done a better job saying that those will be the ones ascending fastest by 2025. It's ok though, they do it for viewer attention.

Agreed. Not at all a bad list and yeah they only looked at the MSA. It's ok though, I thought it was pretty reasonable even then.

China will continue to rise but slower than what we've seen in the past.

Note: the list is ordered by absolute growth rather than percentage growth. In case anyone missed that distinction. So for example, Houston is growing faster than New York on a percentage basis but because New York's total GDP is so much larger it still dominates the list.

According to FP, Philadelphia's GMP today is Seattle's GMP tomorrow lol.

Incredible how fast Seattle is rising relative to its size IMO.

Though in looking this just sort of takes a flat growth approach. And is ranked by absolute growth (still very relevant) versus percentage, or even efficiency of organic growth.

Percentage in an earlier post shows Huston far outpacing NYC in growth percentage. Adjusted for population and organic growth might show Philadelphia with a 600% growth relative to population growth versus Houston with 200% growth relative to population growth. etc.

Though end of day the thing is nearly 15 years away is difficult to extrapolate future performance. Even a company like Microsoft from your example may not be the same growth as history would show etc. Or comparatively some other company.


Does anyone know exactly what goes into a GMP - Does Seattle or Chicago get the credit on aircraft built etc. Honestly I am not even sure exactly how that works
