Generally, yes. You will notice I swapped Shanghai and Paris. I also included Frankfurt and Houston on the next list. GaWC does a pretty good job of listing the world's most important cities, although the list is technically supposed to represent the world's most "connected" cities to London. Their list is pretty accurate, with a few exceptions.
