9269Vancouver is no. 1 again, but why exactly?... and what about externalities?
- Oct 8, 2005Vancouver is 'best place to live'
Vancouver is the world's best place to live, a survey
by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has found.
The EIU ranked 127 cities in terms of personal risk,
infrastructure and the availability of goods and
Article talks relatively specifically about
"terrorismfree" but only vaguely about
"infrastructure" as positives...
Press release from EIU is here:
You have to pay for it but if you click on "resources"
above it will show more about how they conducted
They ask about "quality" (?) of roads, quality of
public transport, quality of international links
(air???, rail??)... but they miss alot (walkability,
safety of children, air quality etc etc... though they
do ask about prices of domestic help! Hmm... who is
this survey for, exactly?) and because there seems to
be no discussion about External Costs how truly valid
IS this research?
