Rising Cost of Living - Information Technology, why do Australians pay more?

This is the second in a series of ten articles commissioned by the Committee for Perth that aims to inform the conversation around the rising costs of living that we are experiencing in Perth and other Australian cities.

Australians are paying more for many goods and services than consumers in comparable countries and cities around the world and according to the Economist Intelligence Unit, cost of living in Australian cities is now among the highest on the planet.
