Find a city, find myself a city to live in...

Here are some criteria of what comprises a livable city:

  1. Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement, etc)

  1. Economic environment (currency exchange regulations, banking services, etc)

  1. Socio-cultural environment (censorship, limitations on personal freedom, etc)

  1. Health and sanitation (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution, etc)

  1. Schools and education (standard and availability of international schools, etc)

  1. Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transport, traffic congestion, etc)

  1. Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure, etc)

  1. Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars, etc)

  1. Housing (housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services, etc)

  1. Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters

Here's a list of which cities either met of exceeded these select metrics. Find yours? Yeah, I thought not...
