"Average Monthly Disposable Salary" is sky high ! Very few people have that much disposable income over there. Most have nothing after paying all the bills.
#mohamed on Mar 11, 2014 :

#Anonymous on Nov 13, 2013 :
Please who ever made this page! Allows the user to add also another products, because this list is not satisfying to me. I wished I could have added beans on that listand be more specific.

Please make the list editable!

#Anomynous on Oct 14, 2013 :
I believe that in the "Markets", there need to be more added like STEAKS; BEEF; BEANS; FISSH; KIWIS; POTATOES and more foods. There are plenty of them but just need to be added on the list.
