Do you think the skyscrapers are the signs and reflections of economical development?

I believe there is a strong correlation to skyscrapers and economy, atleast in America where almost every city has them.

sarcasm noted. but your logic is wrong.

(skyscraper)---〉(economical development) is equivalent to
(no economical development)--- 〉(no skyscraper) instead of
(no skyscraper)--- 〉(no economical development)

anyway, i vote yes, not absolutely true, but in most cases...

Yes Dubai is a backward, primitive Middle Eastern city while Atheen is a highly developed European one, that looks nothing like a typical Middle Eastern city, as some here say.

You can't put Europe here with the other continents. Europe got developed before the scycraper era, so lacking of scycrapers there should not be mention as a argument.

It is A sign but many wealthy places choose not to have lots of skyscrapers while other quite poor places can have big tall buildings, it depends on the type of development a city or country has chosen.

No way, would you say then that Sao Paulo is the richest city on earth?

I would say it depends on the quality of the skyscraper not the quantity

I'd say it's nothing special

There are developing cities with the hell of the skyscrapers, and there are already developed cities with no highrises.

But at the same time, some developing cities have no modern skyscrapers while some developed cities are full of them.

At least, the ones with packed skyscrpers are either already developed or at least have the possibility for the economic boom. But the skyscrapers themselves don't signify anything other than that.

They most certainly can be a sign of health for an economy, but not
necessarily.

London is one of the world's biggest financial centres, but has only a handful of skyscrapers.
