The 150 richest cities in the world by GDP in 2005

 

11 March 2007: The tables provide GDP figures for cities and their surrounding urban areas in 2005. Most such agglomerations are economically, socially and culturally dominated by one city at their centre. Occasionally however, several cities of similar status and their suburbs make up an urban area. The GDP figures are estimated and expressed in US$, using purchasing power parity exchange rates. The estimates are based on PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates and projections as well as UN urban agglomeration definitions and population estimates. The research was carried out by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

 

Montreal is 39th (GDP: USD$120B GDP). Expected to be 47th in 2050 (GDP: USD$180B)

Its the value of your money, how much stuff you can buy with whats left in your pocket after taxes.

 

Its not far fetched that we have a much better PPP than Paris or London.

Intéressant de voir que le niveau de vie des lyonnais dépasse ceux des parisiens si l'on ramène cela en parité de pouvoir d'achat. Je me demande si ce serait le cas pour Québec vs Montréal vu que le PIB/hab est très comparable dans les deux cas.
