Wealthy Asian cities like Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore have ten times the per capita wealth of Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Surabaya, Seoul and Beijing, but per capita car use is less. Many wealthy cities have put their wealth into good transit infrastructure. The result is not a city that is poorer because it wastes money on public transport as suggested by many economists, particularly Treasury officials.
