Here's an older list that isn't 100% accurate, but it fairly close. I'm looking forward to hearing some of your responses.

A. ALPHA WORLD CITIES (full service world cities)

12: London, New York

11: Chicago, Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo

10: Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Milan, Singapore

I don't think Tokyo has more social, economic or political impact than NYC and London.

I would say that New York and Tokyo are on the same level. New York's political importance via the UN, and economic importance (stocks etc) are reason enough.

I agree with monsoon's list entirely, except I'm not sure about Tokyo being above New York City. Even though Tokyo is absolutely huge, i dont think it has more world impact than NYC.

I tend to agree that Tokyo, London, and New York should be on the same tier, as they all share the common distinction of major financial capital, London having the world's largest foreign exchange market.... although I would concede that London's importance on the global stage seems to be waning as European integration continues.

tokyo might be to the 21st century what nyc was to the 20th. granted they have a recession to pull out of but nyc is still losing jobs and prominence from a corporate standpoint even though the city as a residential place is absolutely flourishing.

i think dubai should be on the list, assuming the oil industry is not going to tank in the next 50 years.
