Do we really need another report speculating on the greatest city to live in the world? PriceWaterHouseCoopers certainly thinks so.

The report, produced in conjunction with the Partnership for New York City, graded 26 metro areas from Stockholm to Santiago on business opportunities, culture, livability, and innovation. And it's no surprise that the authors hometown of new York comes out on top.

Accroding to Merrill Pond, vice president at the Partnership for New York City and the chief architect of the report, a great city is all about growing, retaining and attracting talent.

"Whether it's Stockholm with its strong education system or Toronto benefiting from its smart immigration policies, getting and keeping talent matters."

Here is the top ten. At least this time Vancouver is nowhere to be seen.
