Damascus, Kiev and Tripoli top the list of the 10 cities rapidly becoming the worst to live in the world – Middle East – World – The Independent.

an interesting take on the usual best liveable cities list according to the economist, meant as a guide to remunerate  business people asked to relocate for work in those cities. it highlights the list of cities that have become worst to live.

Top ten cities: 1. Melbourne 97.5 2. Vienna 97.4 3. Vancouver 97.3 4. Toronto 97.2 5.Calgary 96.6 6. Sydney 96.1 7. Helsinki 96 8. Perth 95.9 9. Adelaide 95.9 10. Auckland 95.7

melbourne tops the list, toppling vancouver. the top 10 dominated by cities in australia, new zealand, canada. vienna, in austria comes 2nd and is the only exception.

cant say i want to live in those top 10 cities, haha. far less not getting extra money if i were sent there by my company. double whammy haha. hmm, i found out that down to 63rd position (santiago) all the cities above it dont require a bribe (called hardship fund)to the employee sent there. so not much advantage to being in the top10 cities really.

whereas london and new york are 53rd, and 55th respectively so to be sent to those two cities would be great, ( you will be thrown into a competitive and international environment , great for getting that work experience and expertise and still get to enjoy all the amenities of world class cities) i would think they are desireable places to go and work and then you get extra money as a bribe to relocate there. haha. what not to like.

they should give extra money to those sent to the top cities in the list, as well as those in the bottom cities;  if you ask me as bribes to go there.
