London "most desirable place on earth to work in"

Jump to last reply

You know those nutty surveys that keep telling us how the only place more "liveable" than Zurich is Auckland? Because a bunch of academics define what "liveability" is, and construct a pseudo scientific analysis?

Finally, someone's done a proper survey of where people actually want to work.

And guess what: numbers 1, 2 ,3 and 4 are London, New York, Paris and Sydney (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/jobs/11142074/London-is-most-desirable-global-city-to-move-to-for-work.html )

How Madrid beats Barcelona in this is unfathomable - as is how anyone would even want to change planes in Dubai. But not a hint of the dormitory suburbs like Vancouver, Geneva, Adelaide and Melbourne that typically populate the imbecile "studies" that get quoted so often here.

This survey comes from the Boston Consulting Group, so anyone with the energy to dig into its methodology will doubtless find it's built on the same shaky grounds as most stuff from consultancies.

But you can at least understand the mindset creating the answers. For most people, the best cities are those that are most urban: interesting, alive, good to get ahead in, often dirty, sometimes a bit edgy - but above all stimulating.

And what can Auckland possibly stimulate, except the desire to catch that evening's NZ002 to civilisation?
