"Indonesia Will surpass USA ... mainly because ... of Indonesian Family have more children ...."


that's not a very good news.

We'd have to crank our economy more just to provide same level of life as now.

Yep, that's a problem in the Middle East. In Saudi Arabia living standards have declined by half because of too many children.

Weird how CHina is excluded in the survey =)
Isn't China generally considered to be in Northeast Asia? Anyhow, the survey categorizes the Asian continent into Southeast Asia and Asia, which consists of the remainder of the continent minus the middle east. Weird...

Hmmm I wonder what kind of standard they use for that ranking.

In Jakarta, since no adequate public transport... everybody use private cars.. going here and there must use toll way or risking trapped in trafic jam. But whichever option you choose, it still takes time to reach a place.

To eat you have two options, either get eat at traditional food stall (which is cheap), or eat at modern food court (and expensive).

There's no 'real' public park where you can sit down and relax (too hot anyway). So you need to go to mall (air conditioned) and buy expensive stuff.

Then, for most ppl, wages standard is low. What you get in a month is just enough for living. No more money for saving. Or having more fun. And buy pleasure items (stereo etc).

Also, cost of phone calls, mobile calls, can be considered as expensive for Indonesia. Internet is still expensive (broadband anyone?).

Even though oil etc is subsidized. It never reach the right ppl. All gone, eated by greedy ppl and corporate.

So cost of living, can be considered high in a way.
etc etc.
