    Smile Compare prices around the world.

    I thought this website would be useful to some posters.

    nice you can update it too.


    But not everyone comes from the city to a city etc etc - so it would be nice to have a "rural" comparison too or second city comparisons etc etc.

    We discussed it in another thread:


    IMO, and others agreed, not just the face monetary value should be compared but how long one has to work for things;



    e.g. xy minutes for eggs, yz hours for weekly rent...

    Useful but I find it hard to believe that Health Care is 45 % MORE expensive in AKL than Washington DC!

    Interesting, but to measure the Health Cost only by Cold medicine and Tampons is hardly what I call accurate



    Also, some brazilian, american and italian prices are weird, not to say wrong...



    Anyway, there's some valuable data, thanks for sharing...
