Market Watch
Major cities including New York and Tokyo tagged for climate distress: Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs’s Global Markets Institute, led by Amanda Hindlian, has warned in a new report of “significant” potential risks to the world’s largest cities, which are especially vulnerable to more frequent storms, higher temperatures, rising sea levels and storm surges. Cities generate about 80% of global GDP and house more than half of the world’s population, a share that Goldman says, citing the United Nations, is projected to reach two-thirds by 2050.
