Looking for a region that has bounced back from the recession quickly?  Better look in Asia and Latin America.

Global MetroMonitor, a report released this week by Brooking Institution and the London School of Economics, ranks 150 metro regions from across the world based on gross value added– the value of goods and services produced, – employment and population. Topping the list was Istanbul, Turkey followed by Shenzen, Lima, Singapore, Santiago, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Manila, and Rio de Janeiro rounding out the top ten.

Austin, TX is the top American metro region on the list coming in at 26th.  Other highly ranked North American regions include Montreal (27), Virginia Beach (36), Dallas (39), Detroit (46) and Nashville (48).
