Moscow may be difficult for U.S. expats

The consulting firm Mercer reports the cost of compensating expats has jumped by nearly 20 percent in the past 12 months, thanks to a weaker U.S. dollar. The most expensive city on the planet to send employees to is still Moscow, which earns the title for the third year in a row. Tokyo and London are next. New York, the only U.S. city in the top 50, is 22 on the list.

If you're a list junkie like me and you need an additional fix, here's a list of the most expensive cities in the world and Mercer's list on best places for quality living.
