This question depends entirely on how you define a city. That said, I think this is an unfair critique, it is because of the centralization of people that allows for the efficiency of creating and transporting massive amounts of goods and is why our planet is not currently overpopulated.

Yes, the current model should be questioned and redesigned but I don't think cities are the problem, but the general consumption of living in capitalistic cities is the problem.

massive amounts of goods

Isn't that part of the problem of why our society is so inefficient?

I fail to see how having a lot of goods is inefficient. Inefficiency comes from the methods of distribution of those goods (capitalism).
