    this is totally OT of bass but I'm interested what some average costs and wages are in your country (I hope lots of people from all over answer this one):

    *my averages below are based on someone with a fulltime job, not a muso that lives of 2 gigs a week* :smug:

    Here in Melbourne, Australia I would say:

    average yearly wage is AUD$40,000 (USD$31,000)
    average house costs AUD$370,000 (USD$290,000)
    average decent new car (Holden Commodore) costs AUD$30,000 (USD$23,500)
    average weekly shopping bill for family of 4 AUD$120 (USD$93)

    whats your averages???

    average yearly wage is (USD$100,000)
    average house costs (USD$840,000)
    average decent new car (compact)(USD$28,000 on up)
    average weekly shopping bill for family of 4 (USD$195)

    Rough gestimate on the yearly wage. It could very well be higher.

    The price mentioned is for a small 3 bedroom bungalow in western Switzerland near Geneva. Rent is expensive. Small bungalows rent start at USD 4,200 a month and go up from there.

    With reference to decent new cars, some people consider Daewoo decent, I consider BMW decent. Then there's mid size, subcompact, etc so it's difficult to nail that one.

    The shopping bill is my shopping bill for the four of us.

    Not cheap.

    Average monthly wage for full-time workers: 4,500 USD
    Average boring car: 47,000 USD
    Average decent house around here: 400,000 USD

    All figures are RBE (rough ballpark estimate). If you want to dig, go here.
