The RCG Global Economic Power Index (EPI) is a measure of the economic strength of cities around the world. The EPI combines data from the Forbes Billionaires List and the Global 2000 companies. The Global Power City Index is weighted according to where billionaires live and leading public companies are headquartered, a sort of marriage between where the wealthy reside and where wealth is created. Both are not always the same, as certain tax-friendly jurisdictions can be home to plenty of billionaires but no G2000 companies.
Our ranking highlights the importance of global cities to the world’s economy. Their rise and fall can be tracked over time. Much wealth remains in the West, but China is rapidly changing all that with the rise of its megalopolises (clusters of large cities in a key location). EPI is the most accurate ranking of countries’ economic power. Find out who really wields the most economic power in the world.

Cities have been grouped into their largest denominations (economic areas or metropolitan areas) based on government definitions.
