Okay, most of us are tired of all these city-by-city ranking lists. But this one is pretty cool: Boston is ranked #10 in a list of the world’s most “competitive” cities, which measures economic growth, quality of human capital, and quality of life etc. The list was compiled by Citigroup.

Must be the academic, high tech, finance, and life sciences sectors that propelled Boston into the top 10. It certainly wasn’t the quality of pizza parlors here. That’s a pet peeve of ours. Yes, Santarpio’s and Regina’s are top-notch pizza places, along with a few others. But … where were we? Oh, yeah, economic competitiveness and Nobel Prize winners and industry innovation and diversity. We’re No. 10!
