The Top Ten Best Places in the World to Live

The Economist Intelligence Unit is out with its annual “liveability index." The index is based on 30 factors related to things like safety, healthcare, educational resources, infrastructure and environment in 140 cities.

Here are the top ten cities according to the index:


  1. Where's the Emerald City? Certainly the Wizard of Oz provided the most livable environment by protecting the citizens from the Wicked Witch of the East and the Wicked Witch of the West. None of the cities listed comes close to that kind of quality.

  2. Do you think one of those 30 factors is a low tax rate? Probably not.

  3. Surely the wicked terrorists of the middle east are equally a threat?

    They are protecting us from that here in sydney, they tell us so every single day in all the main papers and media outlets.
