Global cities of the future: An interactive map

Check out this super cool interactive map from Mckinsey Quarterly showing expected global urban growth. From their site, “Rapid urbanization is propelling growth across emerging markets and shifting the world’s economic balance toward the east and south. By 2025, it will create a “consumer class” with more than four billion people, up from a billion in 1990 (my emphasis). Nearly half will live in the emerging world’s cities, which are set to inject almost $25 trillion into the global economy”.

Wow!
