World's Most Expensive City revealed...
« on: June 21, 2007, 08:11:33 PM »
Moscow is the world’s most expensive city for expatriates for the second consecutive year, according to the latest Cost of Living Survey from Mercer Human Resource Consulting.  London is in  second position, climbing three places since last year.  Seoul moves down one place in the ranking to take third place, followed by Tokyo in fourth.  Asuncion in Paraguay is the least expensive city for the fifth year running.

Mercer's annual Cost of Living Survey covers 143 cities across six continents and measures the comparative cost of over 200 items in each location, including housing, transport, food, clothing, household goods and entertainment.* It is the world’s most comprehensive cost of living survey and is used to help multinational companies and governments determine compensation allowances for their expatriate employees.

Top 50 rankings

Europe, Middle East, Africa: Europe dominated the top 50, placing 30 cities on the list and capturing six of spots in the top ten. Strong currencies helped push most European cities higher for 2007.

Africa placed five cities in the top 50, with Douala, Cameroon on top with a rank of 24. Four of the African cities climbed in the rankings while Lagos, Nigeria dropped from 31 to 37.

Four cities in the Middle East were in the top 50 for 2007, lead by Tel Aviv, Israel in 17th place. Istanbul, Turkey took the biggest drop in the top 50, from 15th to 38th.

Asia: Eight Asian cities were on the top 50 list, led by Seoul, Korea in third place. The biggest mover was Taipei, Taiwan which dropped from 28th to 48th.

Americas: Only two US cities made the list (New York City at 15th and Los Angeles at 42nd) thanks to the weak US dollar. No Canadian or Latin American cities were in the top 50.

Australasia: Sydney was the lone representative in the top 50, placing 19th. (mercerhr.com/knowledgecenter)

i heard about it...

a friend of mine ming-adto sa Moscow for a tour. while nagsuroy sila with a Russian guide, naay batan-on nagsige og sunud-sunod niya. giingnan niya ilang guide to ask the young man ngano nagsunod-sunod. so the guide asked the young man. miingon man kaha nang guide nga nakagusto ang young man sa iyang pants nga Levis. ang worth sa levis is equivalent to a 3-month salaray sa Moscow..perting mahala.  unya ang palit sa akong friend ukay-ukay ra intawon.

naluoy akong friend so he told the guide to tell the young man paadtuon sa hotel ikagabii.

wala pa mahuman akong friend akong kaligo naay mingtoktok...nagda ang Russian young man og carpet. minsinyas nga barter lang sila. iyang gihatag ang Levi's niya..gidugangan og usa isip baylo sa carpet. ang carpet mahal sa pilipinas pero sa russia barato sab.

high-in kaayo sa russia ang branded nga sinina, sapatos ug watch didto.
