Econintersect:  McKinsey & Co is continuing to report its research on the changing nature of economic growth.  From 2010 to 2015 nearly 2/3 of global GDP growth will occur in 600 cities; nearly half will occur in 443 emerging market cities.  McKinsey predicts that around 1 billion middle class consumers will swell to more than 4 billion by 2025.  Half of these will live in the 443 emerging market cities.
