As with anything, take it with a grain of salt. Dublin made the list but Shanghai did not. When GDP is factored in to the author's equation, the list changes a bit. Cities like Hartford and Bridgeport CT are in the top 25 while cities like Shanghai, Beijing, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Dallas, Mexico, Beunos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rome, Mumbai, etc. are omitted. It's hardly flawless. It weighs finance and human capital very heavily (which is why Boston ranks as high as it does). As with any of these lists, I don't think it's an accurate picture of how these cities are viewed around the world. Especially the second list with Bridgeport and Hartford listed. I lol'd when I read that.

As others have stated, the list puts Dublin ahead of Shanghai and Beijing, whereas I'd imagine Dublin faltering to most cities on this list. Interesting article, but definitely to be taken with a grain of salt.

I wouldn't want my city to live in the shadow of another higher power city. Definitely NOT!
