Once again, you are confusing being a hub with being important.

London is a hub of international economic activity, sure why not---but all of the economic activity in London i.e. GDP is approximately HALF of New York's total economic activity.

So once again "HUB" is not "POWER"

Its not bias.

I stopped counting at 11 trillion dollars when adding up the assets managed out of New York. London was like less than half that.
