Stan,

>It seems that if one wants to retire in Europe or UK, the place to avoid if you are on an external fixed income would be Norway or Denmark and countries like Bulgaria would be very attractive. For cars the UK is 0.91 of the average of all countries, compared to Denmark at 1.74 times the average. In consumer electronics, like cameras, the UK is lower than any other country in the region.<

I don't doubt the above values, but when taken in isolation they do not tell the whole story. 0.91 vs. 1.74 sounds appalling...until you factor in that Danish infrastructure caters specifically for cyclists to a greater extent than does the U.K. Danes almost certainly cycle more than Brits generally. Public transport may be more extensive across the country. Therefore, the significant increase in the cost of a car purchased in Denmark over and above the same car purchased in the U.K. may not be as 'significant' as initially assumed. Additionally, Denmark is considered generally to be one of the best places to live in the world for quality of life, scoring highly or even coming in top in polls. The U.K. does not.

Be careful of cherry picking data is all I'm saying.

Sorry for marginally derailing the thread. No further comment from me.

Cheers,

Rob
