You guys used to react to provocations on this thread which i understand well, but here nobody imply the contrary of what you mean.. ! So please , stop the annoying pride , everyone with a bit of education already know that paris is on the top for a lot things , but no need to say it again and over again !

No need to bash others cities (wich can be smaller in a lot of things but still revelant , in wich case we should make a versus with our own beta cities as well).
Yes comparing Paris with London or Tokyo has more sense that comparing it with brussel , but let's stay polite or trolls (or not) will start to answer, and this thread which used to be about Paris great projects will become a garbage.

The economic and industrial power of paris is more important as London.
London has no factories, no industrial production.
LONDON IS ONLY A STOCK EXCHANGE A BIG BANK AND NOT MORE...... an a stock exchange is VIRTUAL ECONOMY no real.
London is producing nothing ONLY VIRTUAL MONEY.


Whoever told you that was smoking crack.

It's a terrible mistake to think business activity and economic power are the only indicators to determine the influence or power of a city.
Education, research, culture etc... for example, are very good indicators.

Lot of people know Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, however its region is in crisis since a long long time. It show that cultural experience have an important impact on the cities influence.

everywhere when you are talking when people are talking about LONDON they are talking only about bis banks and his stock exchange..
I have never read a text which spoke about londoner industrial power, I have never seen any pictures of factories of London on skyscrapercity....but always stock exchange and stock exchange....
AND WHY ARE NYC AND LONDON AHEAD of PARIS......(another world french basin proof) because paris is french and london and nyc are speaking english.
in our society everything is always better when its english.
and look at every audits, studies, most of this societies are british and american, And their studies always favor LONDON and classify Paris BEHIND.

NYC and LONDON have an enormous natural advantage, without making anything,they are ENGLISH SPEAKING CITIES.

but all respect with PARIS on the THIRD place with his enormous disadvantage or handicap.......his french language.....

If only PARIS would speak English?

the same exemple is in CANADA, Montreal is a very underrated city because they are speaking french and everybody are only talking about TORONTO.
Go on vonbingen! Tell these bloody English speakers to have a bit of respect for the poor underrated Frenchies.

A moderator should clean this thread up by deleting post and banning certain members. Thats the only way to get this once wonderful thread back on track.

Yeah. This and London threads seem to periodically descend into chaos. Pretty annoying.

There's no "better". There are "bigger", "richer", "livable", "older" etc
