Mercer released its latest survey of the most expensive cities to live for expatriates. Tokyo is the priciest — last year it was No. 2 — followed by Luanda, Angola, and Osaka, Japan.
The United States seems like a bargain. Out of the 214 most expensive cities worldwide, no U.S. city makes the list until New York weighs in as No. 33. Los Angeles is the second priciest city here, coming in 68th worldwide, followed by No. 90 San Francisco.
