Anyways take all this up with Knight Frank, buddy, I didn't make this study. It's you crying because you don't like the results, and you're taking it out on me because I posted it. Because like what I said, you're salty.
What are you smoking? You've basically outed yourself here with stupidity. On so many levels. I won't even pick apart your first sentence.

Now about where billionaires are "spending most of their time" (obviously implying Miami) - do you honestly think the founder or a billionaire CEO or Chairman of multiple boards or real estate developer (aside from Miami's Jorge Perez) or active investor or hedge fund manager are spending MOST of their time vacationing in Miami?

Are you F'ing insane? It's called VACATION for a reason. It's for most people ~2 weeks out of the year. And if people have the option, they aren't doing 2 weeks all in Miami. Busy billionaires are flying around, sure. Maybe they own a house in Palm Beach or Dade County (probably not Broward), or Naples, Vero Beach, Ponte Vedra, Longboat Key, or Sarasota. But they are spending MOST of their time between meetings wherever and their primary residence, likely to be found in the list of cities with most UHNWI (which is a list Miami is not even on).

Now where do you think people spend MOST of their money - where they spend a few vacation days, maybe where they own a second home, or where they LIVE MOST of the time? What would be most logical here?

If we want to talk non-profits alone, why doesn't Miami have world class cultural amenities like the lowly cities of Philly, SF, Boston, DC, and Chicago? Why doesn't Miami have world class universities like these cities? Why doesn't downtown Miami more office space to hold all of the companies owned by these billionaires so business can be conducted? Oakland, CA has more office space downtown than Miami does.

Ohhhhh, I forgot - none of these people spend more than a few days a year there! So at the end of the day, they don't really give 2 s**ts about the place.

Except they do, read the OP and simmer down. You don't know much of anything, so why are you giving lectures?

Nothing drives Miami's economy, it's all about wanting to be here.
You're on a whole new level of indenial. Stats, facts, data all prove that SF has more millionares and billionaires. Again what are you smoking? All you are doing is posting lies because 80% of the stuff you have said is whole thread is not true. What are you going to say next? The sky is green?

I found another recently released peer reviewed study of equal importance:

Most Important Planets for the Rich

1. Earth
2. Elysium (not sure how it qualifies as a planet..)

Billionaires can afford PRIVATE RESORTS and usually not into the young night club scene LOL They can easily go to the South of France or have their own Greek Isle or Caribbean private hideaway....
