I had to search back for over 2 years in the More or Less Podcast Archive to recall the episode that discusses the
Dollar per Day statistic
Although the actual statistic is somewhat flawed (listen to the Podcast) I had to compare it with last Friday's Swiss statistic on which Marcus and Agata faced another
1000 CHF plus day
1000CHF is by the way about 1110 US dollars or about 660 GBP.
Let me break it down:
Audi Car Service (+780 CHF)
Weekly Food Shopping (+380 CHF)
Wiggle Sports Order (+200 CHF)
Sold Speakers (-40 CHF)
Sold Hair Styler (-10 CHF)
Already we are over 1000 CHF and we of course did not include Apartment rental costs, Insurance Costs, Clothing, Car Insurance, Petrol or other ongoing big ticket items.
As you can see we sold some assets but the 50CHF gained for the 3 hours spent advertising, packing, posting can best be described as a loss leader just barely touching the gigantic costs of comfortable living in Deepest, Darkest, Expensive Switzerland.
I invite the BBC More or Less team to come to Switzerland to validate our findings.
