  • The Geo-Graphics Mini Mac Index Deep Fries The Economist's Big Mac Index

    The Economist magazine’s famous Big Mac Index uses the price of McDonald’s Big Macs around the world, expressed in a common currency (U.S. dollars), to estimate the extent to which currencies are over- or under-valued. But you can’t buy a cheap burger in Beijing and eat it in New York, so it's less likely that global burger prices would converge. That's why Benn Steil, Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, created the Mini Mac Index, which compares the price of iPad minis across countries. iPad minis are a global product that, unlike Big Macs, can move quickly and cheaply around the world, which helps equalize prices.

Our word of the day is “Big Mac indexThe Big Mac index was devised by Pam Woodall of the Economist in 1986, as a light-hearted guide to whether currencies are at their "correct" level. It is based on one of the oldest concepts in international economics, purchasing power parity (PPP), the notion that a dollar, say, should buy the same amount in all countries. In the long run, argue pop fans, currencies should move towards the exchange rate, which equalizes the prices of an identical basket of goods and services in each country.
