What is your most unhealthy habit

Report: The cheapest place to bend is Luxembourg

If it is not a question of covering international commodity markets or assessing bond trends, then this is directed Bloomberg his business eye on drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. The business news site publishes its Global Vice Index annually, a comparative assessment of the "proportion of income required to maintain a broad weekly habit of cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, cocaine and opioids in more than 100 countries." This year's results? It's cheapest to get shit in Luxembourg.

Luxembourg - a European country that sounds like it produces a lot of competitive cyclists - is a small forest nation between Belgium, Germany and France. While the cost of a theoretical runner-up basket in the US rose by nearly $ 200 last year - to about 54 percent of the average weekly wage - those same debauchery stores will get you back less than 10 percent of Luxembourg weekly wages. This is because not only is the total cost of these supplies relatively low, but the average weekly wage in Luxembourg is the highest in the world. So if, in theory, you are interested in this type of activity, you should get a comfortable job in Luxembourg - which you would lose instantly due to massive cocaine use. (Regardless, the national dish there is smoked pork collar, which sounds lovely.)

Other countries with expensive drug and alcohol rates include Japan, New Zealand, and Australia, where a fixed weekly habit would cost a person more than $ 1,000. (Apparently it is expensive to be devastated on islands in the eastern hemisphere.) Countries where the custom is relatively cheap include Ghana, Congo, Colombia, South Africa, and Guatemala. Prices are affected by the availability of online drug sales, individual country drug laws, and the rise in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
