  1. This video is misleading when it comes to size of the cities. Tokyo, Manilla and Mumbai where picked at city level while Shanghai and Beijing where picked at urban/metro area levels.

    It's best to stick with one ranking throughout particularly that of metropolitan areas as they better demonstrate the economic activities associated with large clusters of human habitation.
