Melbourne World’s Most Livable City

by Kevin Jon Heller

It’s been a slow blogging week, so I think I can get away with a completely self-serving post about the awesomeness of Melbourne.  And yes, Melbourne is awesome.  The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Livability Survey says so — again:

1. Melbourne
2. Vienna
3. Vancouver
4. Toronto
5. Calgary
5. Adelaide
7. Sydney
8. Helsinki
9. Perth
10. Auckland

The survey assesses 140 cities on factors in five categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.  Melbourne received a perfect score on infrastructure, healthcare and education.

Perhaps this is a good time to mention that my law school is currently advertising two entry-level positions, though at least one of the people we hire will need to teach business law.  Applications close in a week — August 22nd.

  1. It is interesting that 4 of the 10 cities are in Australia and 3 in Canada.  None are in the US.
