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

  1. #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

    Regards
    Digby
    NZ

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

    Ever heard of the Big Mac Index?
    http://www.google.se/search?q=big+ma...S:ohmy:fficial

    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.

    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
