I guess this is true. But what can be disputed is whether "capital of the world" is a desirable thing to be.

New York is by most factual studies (rather those with a crushing inferiority complex) the most powerful city in the world. Economists and other academics who study these things will do the thinking for you.

You seem to be confusing New York with London.

So many Londoners seem to have a deep and crushing inferiority complex when it comes to New York as of late. What else could explain the resident Londoners who sit on the New York board to hurl their unfounded opinions (masked insecurity).
