The most expensive American city, number six on the list, is New York.

Over the coming year, we expect to see the cost of living rise further in many cities as wages increase in many sectors, Upasana Dutt, head of worldwide cost of living at the Economist Intelligence Unit, via press release.

However, we are also expecting central banks to raise interest rates, cautiously, to stem inflation.

So the price increases should start to moderate from this year’s level, Upasana Dutt, head of worldwide cost of living at the Economist Intelligence Unit, via press release
