The top 10 most expensive world cities
Where the cost of living is highest.

City Nation Index (New York is 100)
Oslo Norway 134
Paris France 130
Copenhagen Denmark 126
London United Kingdom 125
Tokyo Japan 124
Osaka Japan 118
Reykjavic Iceland 118
Zurich Switzerland 118
Frankfurt Germany 116
Helsinki Finland 116


Shows here that you better make 25% more in london to break even to NY. Which is very expensive compared to most of the usa

But ya, my day job pays me 15 my night job pays me 20 an hour and it's still not enuf
