Geneva ranked 8th "most reputable city" in 2015

The Reputation Institute (I'd never heard of them before -- they should work on their reputation) has released their annual "City RepTrak" report, ranking major cities on three broad measures:

- environment (including beauty and well-known personalities),
- government (including safety, leadership, transport and communications), and
- economy (including stability and growth, technology, products and services).

Geneva has come in 8th on this list. No other Swiss city made the top 10, and of the top 20, 15 are European; however, the #1 and #2 spots are taken by Sydney and Melbourne, respectively, with Vancouver, Tokyo and Osaka rounding out the top 20.

Geneva must have scored very highly on environment and economy to pull its overall ranking up so high.

No offence intended, but that survey is the most useless I have seen. Even Parisians don't like Paris! It must have been made by ex-Russian mistresses.

Not too many of those in Sydney or Melbourne -- they're too expensive, even for Russian mistresses!
