UBS Report on Global Purchasing Power comparison

This is the updated PDF from the 2009 report, with the next one due in 2012 and thought it might be good food for thought.

Quote:
Price levels Oslo, Zurich and Geneva are the most expensive cities
Wage levels Highest salaries in Switzerland, Denmark and Norway
Domestic purchasing power Zurich, Sydney and Miami with highest purchasing power

Re: UBS Report on Global Purchasing Power comparison

The numbers are, as in most such studies, useless without knowing what went in to calculating them.

The first table on Price Levels would suggest that it would be a cake to live in Mumbai with an expat package... once you get there and look around, you would realize that a nice 3 bed apartment in the most desirable part of town will run you a little more than Bahnhofstrasse prices in Zurich...
