Cost of living not the problem

Published by at 11:20 pm under More News,Opinion

A recent international study ranked SA the second cheapest country in the world to set up in. However, SA was pulled down on the overall ranking of “Best places to live in” by a second criterium called “quality of life”.

SA was given a much lower ranking for “quality of life” (probably because of the high level of crime). Consequently, SA could only make it into seventh place on the “Best places to live” ranking, reported the International Investment site here.

Worse news: New Zealand was ranked “Best place to live”. 

Here is the full ranking for “Best place to live”: New Zealand, Italy, Australia, Portugal, Dubai, Spain, South Africa, UK, Florida, Singapore, Canada, France, Hong Kong and New York in that order.

PS. Not all will agree with France and New York’s low ranking! In fact, many might think these are the best places to be in the world.
