We've had some discussion over the last few days about whether one
should charge more if one's cost of living is higher, with claims about
the relative cost of living in the US & Thailand.

Here's a nice wee write up of a recent survey:
which shows that Europe is pretty cheap at the moment (Dublin
is cheaper than Lagos) because of the low value of the Euro.

Tokyo remains the most expensive place, 66% more than NY.

London is the most expensive place in Europe because the UK
isn't in the Euro.
