Back in the USSR: NYC Not as Pricey as Motherland

From the "affirming what you probably already knew" file this morning we get Mercer HR's annual survey on worldwide cost of living, and?wouldn't ya know??New York's the priciest place to live in North America. Still, it could be worse: Former seat of Communism, Moscow, gets global honors in the most expensive category. Large-home prices there have risen 50% recently, catapulting the Russian city over Tokyo. Can you say puzir?
