Vi har alle hĂ¸rt at Monocle Magazine har kĂĽret Munchen som top of the pops af byer der er bedst at leve i, og KĂ¸benhavn pĂĽ 2. pladsen. Men er det sĂĽ bedre at Business Week har lagt KĂ¸benhavn pĂĽ en 11. plads pĂĽ deres top 100 ? Jeg bed dog mĂŚrke i at Helsinki fĂĽr credit for den er hurtig at komme vĂŚk fra, og i Paris regner det (ĂĽbenbart!?).
“The rankings looks at 39 factors in the following categories: political, economic, cultural and social environment, health and medicine, schools and education, public services and transport, recreation, consumer goods, housing and natural environment”.
“After much tyre-kicking, data-sifting and deliberation, Munich emerged as Monocle’s most liveable city in the world. A winning combination of investment in infrastructure, high-quality housing, low crime, liberal politics, strong media and general feeling of GemĂźtlichkeit make it a city that should inspire others”.

04- Tokyo: Integrated transport, breathtaking technology, great service and the best bars make this our top big city.
05- Vienna: Vienna is back at the heart of Europe – its well-connected airline helped put it in fifth place.
06- Helsinki: The fastest flying times from Europe to Asiaâs hubs make Helsinki more than Nokia-town.

19- Paris: It rains, dogs foul the street, thereâs little green space but the city works.
20- Geneva: It may have a Latin beat but what really makes Geneva tick is cash.
