Wow, The Atlantic is on a roll tonight with some great global articles. The below will take you to a great article that shows spending by household in a large number of categories (e.g. Food, housing, entertainment, etc.) and across 9 major countries.

The HR Implication:
If you are trying to educate business executives on the comparison of buying power around the globe – this article is a pretty good read to paint the picture of how cost of living varies around the world.  It paints a great picture of explaining that while you may be taking care of expat housing, that is actually is a lesser deal than taking care of some of their other expenses.

Happy reading!
