The Atlantic takes a look at some of the world’s most economically powerful cities, and while New York City is still the world’s most dominant metropolis, Seoul places in the top 10 in several lists.

Sadly, though, the city places just 20th on The Economist’s Global City Competitiveness Index, behind at least one Third World city (Los Angeles). We also don’t do particularly well in the McKinsey Global Institute’s Global GDP 2025 list, although amazingly, Hwaseong, Asan, Yeosu and Ulsan placed 7th, 8th, 10th and 17th, respectively, in global GDP per capita by 2025. Wow.
