I mean, all American cities have become giant pestilential homeless camps.

Must be economics, that's the only metric US cities are likely to score well in.

I think US cities score well in areas other than economics, to include cultural and education. NYC has a world class cultural/entertainment scene (theater, museums, etc.) and education scene at the university level.

I will say that I was surprised that Beijing was ranked above Shanghai in the first list, though that issue was "corrected" for the second ranking.

Are you kidding?
American cities have among the highest GDP in the world. You may argue the living standard is different, but even if you apply purchasing power parity to all cities, American cities are still very economically powerful despite relatively lower populations than large cities in emerging countries. As for homeless camps, well it’s just failure of one part of the societal or political system in the US, but that doesn’t mean other countries have no population living in poverty.

Not sure what you are getting at. I asked what the criteria was. If its economics, fine, but the quality of living is not there. Really doesn't merit "are you kidding..."

I am not.

Madrid at #19 in the world, really?

I don't know anything about Spain's economy but I'm surprised to see it over cities like Rome, Moscow, Tel Aviv, and Mumbai.

The capital of the Spanish speaking world, not really an insignificant thing really is it? Rome is weaker economically in Italy than Milan but probably not culturally. Moscow yes is surprising but maybe the war has an impact, Tel Aviv is not that important at all and Mumbai is still plagued by poverty.

I'm guessing the downturn in tech this year has caused San Francisco to drop four spots in the rankings?
