That investment chart is very impressive, this country isn't down and out yet.
It seems that London is not gaining as much respect as it warrants due to the fact that it's skyline is not developed or as tall as some other cities.

What amazes me is that I never hear in the mainstream media about London still being the city with the highest amount of investment. Probably because it doesn't sit well with the current zeitgeist of 'everything moving East' and China being the new big player, yet it should be a source of pride and a ray of sunshine in an otherwise bleak economic picture.

The rise of the BRICS and Arab states has been advantageous for London in terms of investment. For both, London is the most highly regarded city according to that same report.
