The analytical department of the British magazine Economist published the next rating of cities in the world with the highest cost of life: according to the results of 2022, it was headed by New York and Singapore, BBC reports.
The rating of Economist Intelligence Unit notes that prices in 172 large cities of the world have taken off by 8.1%over the past year. This is the largest figure over the past 20 years, during which the magazine collects data on the cost of life in the world.
The reason for this jump experts consider Russian aggression against Ukraine and the Policy of the Zero Covid in China, in which Beijing constantly introduces the Locksuns.
New York led the rating of the most expensive cities in the world for the first time-this happened due to high inflation in the USA and high dollar. Last year, Tel Aviv was in the first place, now he took the third position.
The cheapest cities of the world are the Libyan Tripoli and the capital of Syria Damascus. Among cities with the lowest property of life is also the largest city in Kazakhstan of Almaty and the capital of Uzbekistan Tashkent.
