^Well US cities tend to be wealthier than most cities in the world...(please don't bitch at me for making that statement, I've been to many many cities in both North America and Europe and I still stand by my statement)...but I am very surprised not to see a few cities such as Toronto on the list as an example. I guess we have to keep in mind this is a per capita rather than flat out total GDP which is why areas like Minneapolis, San Diego, and Denver rank so high when on a total GDP would rank lower.

Purchasing Power Parity is an estimate that uses prices on consumer items, and not a universally defined estimate at that. It can go by any metric the surveyors choose. In this case, they probably included something that's much more subsidized, and cheaper in the US.

Gasoline, for instance.
