Lots of US cities went down a notch compared to the previous listing and it looks like the US overall has gone down.

C'mon you guys have got to stop whining. Miami ranks alpha over Houston and Dallas and here comes the whining. Theres a reason why Miami is ranked above those cities, despite its inferior economy you guys like to harp on. Whining makes you look pathetic and no one posting here is more credible than GaWC thats for sure. If you don't like the ranking you can go kick rocks. Bottom line is despite Miami being more of an alpha city than Houston and Dallas (according to GaWC), it still more room to grow than Houston and Dallas which is very scary for its future potential. Lets not forget that Miami is a baby historically so to see it grow into this alpha status it has become has truly made people bash Miami because its ranked over their city.

Even Dallas is more international and cosmopolitan than Atlanta.

Actually, never mind. Texas isn't really in the south, but Atlanta is, so Atlanta is the most cosmopolitan by default.
No, that would be Los Angeles.

Houston is 6th.

And using your logic, all Houston and Dallas have to do is appeal a bit more to tourists, then those two cities could be scary powers that will crush any city in the south.

Houston and Dallas have barely scratched the surface as well. They are already more successful and advanced cities than Miami, with more international connections as well. All they need to do is become more tourist friendly, and the true results shall be seen.
Please explain this to me?

It is connected and after Miami, NYC and LA probably 4th but nothing in the U.S. compares to Miami. Even NYC.

Already a thread on this... Not too surprising considering how GWAC surveys the cities.

Man your dense what everyone is saying is that this should not get to much credit since the ranking shift.. Dallas was a Alpha now it beta +. chicargo was Alpha plus now just alpha...so these ranking should be taken with a grain of salt.. your the one so desperate for miami to be a major player your jumpimg up and down

Houston and Dallas are obviously the two major powers in the American South (If Texas is considered southern).
