I like alot of these cities...most liveable, sure, but certainly not the most affordable to live in. How does that work?

Ok...It's nice to see most major American cities like Honolulu, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Boston, Portland, DC selected among the world's most liveable cities.

In my opinion, I think San Diego deserves to be in the top 50.

I can't believe DC even ranks! It's a joke at best and at worst a cesspool AND it ranks above Chicago and NYC!?!? I smell a rigging. I would rather live in a bomb shelter than in DC.

I'm surprised to see Munich on the list - didn't think it was that great.

That, of course, is a personal opinion.
I would say its a great place to live.
But I would say the % of people who agree with me who actually live in the city would fall off dramatically as we go down the socio-economic ladder, and go up as we ascend that ladder. The disparity between the haves and have-nots is appalling in DC..and growing.

Still....I think it belongs in this list..it is a very livable area for the most part.
