Singapore – South Africa has been rated as one of the most miserable places on earth, at least in terms of holding a job and keeping the rising cost of goods in check.
Bloomberg’s Misery Index, computed by adding inflation to the unemployment rate, gives South Africa a score of 32.90%, which is the third most miserable country for all 74 economies surveyed by Bloomberg.
South Africa was rated the fifth most miserable place by the Cato Misery Index earlier this year. (See infographic on next page below.)>>>>>
