Crikey, NZ is expensive

It’s not just housing in New Zealand that’s expensive. It’s, well, it’s nearly everything. Despite incomes here being less than stellar, our cost of living is world class. Certainly top ten.


Mind you, at least the cost of living is not as high as those socialist paradises of Scandinavia and South America.

  1. Hadn't seen this comment before ~ "Danes operate on caveman principles — if you find it, share it, or be shunned. Once your date with Daisy the Sheep is over, you’d better make sure your friends get a turn." According to Australians we NZers are more selfish than Scandinavians.
    But with a "Tall Poppy syndrome" there are similarities with them
    The ten rules or Law of Jante state:

    You're not to think you are anything special.
    You're not to think you are as good as we are.
    You're not to think you are smarter than we are.
    You're not to convince yourself that you are better than we are.
    You're not to think you know more than we do.
    You're not to think you are more important than we are.
    You're not to think you are good at anything.
    You're not to laugh at us.
    You're not to think anyone cares about you.
    You're not to think you can teach us anything.
