One more comment from above:[/I]
those are good comments. those commenters must have strayed over from fallows' blog.

i was also going to make this argument, myself:

It seems to me that London, Paris, Tokyo, Moscow, Seoul, Buenos Aires and Mexico City -- to name the more prominent examples -- possess utterly dominant roles in their countries -- with, yes, a good deal of "unhealthy pathology" created by the imbalance. But New York has a serious rival in size and cultural influence in Los Angeles. And DC in political power. And San Francisco in technology. And Boston in education. And so on. And a number of American cities exert such strong regional influence (Atlanta, Chicago, Miami), that they genuinely rival New York in importance for those Americans who happen to live in the regions in question.

and was glad that someone made it for me. it seems that young friedersdorf isn't aware of any countries where one city really is dominant. (40% of south koreans live either in seoul or its suburbs)
