# Thread: How much is a Big Mac in your Country ?

1. As part of a personal project I am working on I would like to know how much a big Mac is in as many countries as I can find.

I need to know the regular/normal price of a Big Mac in your countires currency.

So it would look like this

Country Price Currency

LapLand 2.50 Laps

I would like a couple of replies per country, but not many more than that.

Here is our price here in New Zealand.

New Zealand \$ 4.45 NZ Dollars

PS I will later expand hope to this to Music CD's, Broadband Connection and wages.

3. UK £1.80(ish) Pounds sterling I think, havent bought one for a good year or so

4. Ever heard of the Big Mac Index?

The Economist's Big Mac index is based on the theory of purchasing-power parity (PPP), the idea that exchange rates should move to equalise the prices of a basket of goods and services across different countries. Our basket is the Big Mac. For example, the cheapest burger in the chart is in China, at \$1.26, compared with an average American price of \$3. This implies that the yuan is 58% undervalued relative to its Big Mac dollar-PPP. On the same basis, the euro is 25% overvalued, the yen 17% undervalued.

5. i'm moving to China

6. uk is £1.88 (i think) = \$3.53

edit: i was looking for united kingdom and didn't notice britain

that is one way of looking at it...

another way is this: they are selling right now here @ 2 for \$2.22 (or in otherwords, \$1.11 each) so......

\$1.11 = £0.59. Sounds to me you are getting ripped off :-P
