No surprise. I read that this morning in the news.
When I speak to ppl from the US they are shocked at our prices.
We pay more for everything. Not to mention one friend of mine earns 70k a year has 3 kids and a wife that doesn't work. Has a paid of 4 bedroom house, goes on holidays, is debt free and has no financial struggles.
He finds it hard to understand how you pay half a million for a piece of crap in a not so nice area.
Yep the lucky country...

I agree with Janesmum - we pay more for everything, and by quite a huge percentage. I'm not sure whether this is a good thing in some cases - i.e. retail where our staff wouldn't be earning a pittance, but we do pay way too much for necessities like utilities, housing, food etc.
