London has again been ranked ahead of New York City as the world’s most influential financial capital. For the second year in a row, the MasterCard Worldwide Centers of Commerce Index ranked London first and New York second. London scored higher than New York in all but one category, including livability, economic stability and ease of doing business. The only other U.S. city in the top 10 was Chicago, with Los Angeles dropping to No. 17 from No. 10 last year.
