It seems they used running and owning a car as a factor for determining this.

Singapore has been the world's most expensive city for a while now, it said 3 years running in the article but I'm pretty sure it's been in the top 2 every year in the last decade.

I never thought that Zurich was more expensive than Geneva though for living.

Yeah, Zurich is very expensive to live. There is lots of money in Switzerland, particularly Zurich, due to the large off-shore banks being located there. The more money there is in an area, the more expensive it is to live there (generally).

Scandinavia is quite expensive too, but they don't have many major cities (they have cities, but not the size of NY/London/Singapore). The biggest surprise imo is that Dubai isn't in the top 10 considering how much money is there.

I agree. I was thinking it would be somewhere up there but I'm guessing that it has some cheaper areas as well.
