In order to provide an objective analysis of the competitiveness of large urban centers, CEOWORLD magazine produced its “Cities Of Economic Influence Index”, competitive in all fields, from finance, fashion, music, and cinema, to now even start-ups and high tech. The most recent ranking of the most economically powerful cities in the world, established by the experts of CEOWORLD magazine, reveals that London is clearly the winner. The Cities Of Economic Influence Index is based on five main indices:
1. Economic power (overall economic activity)
2. Financial weight (strength of a city’s financial and banking sectors)
3. People and politics (political and demographic influence)
4. Quality of life (productivity, infrastructure, quality of life, equity and social inclusion and environmental sustainability)
5. Competitiveness (commercial activity, human capital, cultural experience, and political commitment)

We calculate the total score of a city through these five indices, the table below shows the 10 most economically influential cities in the world on our combined index of cities of economic influence. It is interesting to note that the top 10 cities generate around half of the world’s total economic output and the top 25 represent more than 30% of the world’s economic output. So which city came out on top?
