The fourth-most expensive city is Buenos Aires, followed by Hong Kong, Taipei, Zurich and Geneva. Prices are lowest in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Japan's myth of social harmony took a devastating blow last week when rioting erupted among day laborers in the country's largest skid row. Once the smoke cleared over the weekend, after four days of violence in Osaka's seedy Kamagasaki district, the monolithic Japanese media pointed a collective finger at police corruption as the cause of the rare disturbance.
