Double Scotch

Together with their annual global price index, Deutsche Bank has also published a quality of life index, in which Edinburgh has placed second of all global cities. A table-topping score for commuting time and high placings for health care, pollution and property (resi) price to income measures secures the Scottish capital a rank 31 places above London. Meanwhile, dividing the C&W prime office rent by DB’s ‘Cheap Date’ index (a measure of the cost of an evening out) for that city reveals a second strong result for Edinburgh, which has a cheaper rent-per-date then London, Paris, Dublin, Frankfurt and Madrid.
