  • Potosí is not only the highest city in the world (equal with Lhasa in Tibet at 4000 metres) and the poorest (according to the United Nations quality of life indices). It was also once the richest http://www.pitchford.com/bolivia/bo_potosi.html
  • Potosí is officialy the poorest city in the world according to this web site. http://www.pitchford.com/bolivia/bo_potosi.html It's probably some shanty town outside a megalopolis where the chief building material is card board and having running water is not sanitary. I can think of the outskirts of São Paulo and next the outskirts of Mombay where the official homeless population has exceeded one million. I know both cities are invalid since they are focal hubs for their respective countries where great amounts of wealth are contrasted by great amounts of poverty.
