The Economy

Shashwati and I are planning a research trip to London this summer (for the film), and more than culture shock, we are preparing for price shock. When I go from Taiwan to NY I always feel that I’m being robbed at every meal, since you can eat for a week in Taiwan for what a Manhattan lunch costs — and I’m told that London prices are significantly higher than those in NY!

Well, at least I can console myself with this interesting discussion about why the UK is so damn expensive. I’ll try to keep that in mind when I’m emptying my wallet out for lunch.
