But rarely, if ever, is there even the slightest discussion of how much living expenses amount to in these countries. 2 bucks a week may well be quite a bit more, relative to the cost of living, than wages in the US. That could change the issues involved completely. Of course, quality of life and cultural expectations about the "good life" are relevant issues as well.
So, my question is, does anyone know of any websites that actually compare the wages that so many people think are inhumane to the cost of living in these areas? And bring in something about the quality of life and cultural practices and beliefs about a quality life in these areas?
