Stockholm is the world's No 1 for intellectual capital

Stockholm leads intellectual capital and innovation, the 'mindware' that will build future according to a report by consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers made in may 2011.

"Stockholm ranks first in intellectual capital and innovation; health, safety and security; and, remarkably, demographics and livability, which includes the thermal comfort variable that quantifies the idea that more temperate and consistent climes are more attractive", PricewaterhouseCoopers wrote in the report.

The report is an analysis of the trajectory of 26 cities, all capitals of finance, commerce and culture—and through their performance, seeks to open a window on what makes cities function best.
