Really surprised to see Mexico City and Buenos Aires so low... but maybe I shouldn't be.

I’m surprised Miami was not even included on the list, given the criteria for inclusion and the fact that they included Boston and SF.

Just as a marker, Vienna (no 29) is an expensive place with the worlds highest standard of living for a city. Those above I'd say are skewed by the UHNW 1%.

Another marker is Tokyo - the world's richest city, with high expenses but in a country with a low inequality index thanks to far fewer billionaires operating.

How would you even calculate net? Census doesn't have net income data. Any non-first world country won't have accurate income data anyways, because so many jobs are cash/off the books. 50% of jobs in Mexico are cash. Can you imagine Nigeria? They must just be surveying apples-apples professions, or something.

Also, some of these salary numbers are questionable. How does relatively poor Berlin have higher after-tax income than relatively rich Vienna? Austria doesn't have higher taxes.

Those cities have wealthy, elite upper classes, but overall incomes will definitely be low. They're developing world cities, with millions in third world poverty.

São Paulo below Bombay while its GDP per capita it’s at least 5x higher? Cape Town edging Milan? And that’s just a couple of examples, the whole thing is absurd without any identifiable criteria.

Clearly another bogus ranking to entertain clueless readers.

Highest by what criteria? I've seen Vienna top a quality of life index a few times over the last decade but that's about it. And there are quite a few cities above it who's numbers wouldn't be skewed by UHNW 1% any more than Vienna's.

There are three main liveability indexes.

It won this year (and last), for the Economist Intelligence Unit

https://www.economist.com/graphic-de...-liveable-city



Tenth time in a row by Mercer

https://www.wien.info/en/lifestyle-s...t-livable-city


and is currently 3rd place (after Munich and Tokyo) for Monocle (though perenially second place)

https://monocle.com/film/affairs/qua...5-cities-2019/

The city's that occasionally beat it are Munich, Melbourne, Sydney and Tokyo (all rated by Monocle), which also aren't as billionaire boosted (as for example, San Francisco, Mumbai, Beijing, London, NYC, Hong Kong, Moscow).

Relative livability ≠ relative standard of living.

Actually relative livability is meaningless, and just a function of which subjective inputs you value most.

Without know what areas are included in each city etc its meaning less.
San fransico for example is just the central part of a larger urban area.

Yes, however in that particular example the statistics might not change much if you included the whole metro because there are many wealthy suburbs surrounding San Francisco that would actually make it look even better on this measure (as well as some low income enclaves that might pull it down a bit). Just limiting things to the city, though, you have both wealthy and poor with many of the region's recent immigrants and generational poor remaining in the city.

According to the link London's ranking is unchanged from last year and +3 compared with 2014
