I've been reading a lot about asian cities , economics, tech, and how incredible they are able to keep their growth rate $$$ . Is it safe to say that Asia will rule the world? The US cities looks "tired" in comparison with Asian ones. Europe is broke, South America is broke. I think we are about to witness the "wraith" of Asia.

Asia will be broke too, eventually; things look bright and shiny until they stop being so. So yes I guess we will witness the "wraith" of Asia lmao.

Top10 in terms of what? Just population, or culture, economy, quality of life?

I think Asia will become more and more important but loooong way to go when it comes to ruling the world.

Of the 7.4 billion people on Earth, 4.4 billion live in Asia. The amount of money per person in Asia is not that high, but there are so many people, that yes, it's unavoidable that Asia will become the economic center to the planet, I would argue that it already is.

Asian cities are modern because most of them are new, only time will tell if they can continue that path. US and Europes infrastructure is quite old relatively. In time our old buildings will be demolished and then rebuilt, and then those places will be the modern new cities... It's the cycle of life.

Shanghai jumped 3 spots and Beijing jumped 10 spots, so they are growing, but they are not quite there.

4 of top 10 in Asia
1 in Europe
5 in North America

I see Asia getting 6-7 top 10 spots within 10 years. But London and NYC will remain in the top 10 for a long time. But Los Angeles is a very fast growing city financially, the second fastest after Beijing.
