I meant one franc equal to $0.25 American. Today 1 euro equals $1.12. One bedroom apartment outside of New York City costs minimum $1,500 in medium to not-so-great Neighborhood. Better neighborhood can cost up to $3,000 average house price $750,000 average apartment price to buy two bedrooms no outside space $500,000 and taste of food is terrible compared to France.

Paris seems to have changed considerably, though food prices are much lower that living near New York City. When I live in Paris 1968 it cost me 135 Francs equal to $0.25 full cost to have a baby plus free medical care. In America at that time it would have cost over $2,500. In NYC area ground beef cost $6 for 1 pound roughly half kilo. Average price for inexpensive shoes roughly $100 4 women's shirt about $70. And Metro monthly pass $140. Healthcare in France is far cheaper then America and much better health care too. But here now due to Trump the very very rich pay no taxes while the rest of us pay high tax for nothing. Don't complain about high French tax at least you get things like healthcare with it.

Something missing in your data is access to culture and education. The latter can be calculated like healthcare I think. And the former, you can ask for the number of thaters or concert halls, the price of an average ticket. Cinema is not enough. That's why people go live in New York and Paris, not because it's crazy exopensive.

My two cents. Sorry for the rant.
