    Default Santo Domingo ranked last on 'Smartest' city list

    Check out these rankings:

    IESE 'Smartest' Cities in Motion Index - Business Insider

    Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic ranked last, mostly due to low ratings in transportation, technology, human capital, and economy.
    A bit harsh, no? Santo Domingo has its flaws, but it also has a lot going for it.

    Harsh? I don't think that is the right word. How about factual? Is there something wrong with their methodology or the fasctors they used? Or is it just that someone told you something similar to saying that your baby is ugly.

    These types of rankings are a way for governments and businesses to use the feedback to adjust their actions.

    There are over 1,000,000,000 People in India and not one city was mentioned in the list.

    Dumb list.

    I have only been to Santo Domingo about 30 times and I am still wanting to see what it has going for it over Detroit and East LA.

    I'm surprised the DR made the list, at least it shows progress. But after the DR, came Brazil, Bosnia, Bolivia and Venezuela.

    Somebody has to make the "Dumbest Cities" list, so Santo Domingo will be ranked #1 there for sure.

    you guys are all filled with venom and negativity. it must be because you do not espeak espanish and live in tourist zones. SD is not last in the ranking of the smartest cities, it's fist in the ranking on the dumbest cities. first, ok? FIRST.

    what a bunch of bitter mongers, you.
