Metropolis Now: Top global cities

Foreign Policy magazine included Taipei in the list of the worlds top global cities. Hopefully, the magazine will investigate Kaohsiung next time when compiling its Global Cities Index.

Any thoughts on how to improve FP's ranking methodology? I did not see very much about freedom versus human rights violations, oppression, or crime. Nor was pollution much of a consideration, it seems. Note that some of the cities mentioned as top global cities also ranked as cities with the world's worst traffic. So this ranking most definitely does not assess which are the best cities to live.
