  • 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.

  • Where Nobel Economists Put Their Money

    A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event. He told the audience, which included faculty from business schools around the world, that $4 trillion has been lost...

    In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

  • Big Mac Index issued by the Economist suggests New Taiwan Dollar may be undervalued

    The Economist magazine’s latest “Big Mac Index,” a ranking of the relative strength of the world’s currencies, suggests that the NT dollar may be undervalued by more than 40 percent against the US dollar. Taiwan’s central bank, however, played down the study, and some experts warned against reading too much into the findings, which they said didn’t take into account differences in consumer price indices and income levels across the globe.The latest “Big Mac Index” released by The Economist magazine used an exchange-rate-standardized comparison to show that Taiwan’s currency may be some 40 percent undervalued on the foreign exchange market. The implication is that one US dollar should be worth 20 NT dollars, not 32 as it stands currently. Many locals were incredulous when confronted with th...

The day is at hand when the doom of dogma shall be sounded. The great theological Tower of Babel, with its confusion of tongues, was built of bricks of mud and the mortar of slime.

A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event. He told the audience, which included faculty from business schools around the world, that $4 trillion has been lost in real estate, and another $8 trillion to $9 trillion has been lost in the stock market. Asked by Solman if the current down market makes this a good time to invest, Samuelson, perhaps the preeminent American economist of the 20th century and the sole winner of the 1970 Nobel, expressed uncertainty. History teaches no lessons, he said. You dont know when to get back in. Speaking to a packed house in SMGs fourth-floor dining room, the Nobel laureates several times digressed with teasing banter. Asked when he planned to retire, the 93-year-old Samuelson explained that he would have to grow up before he considered retirement. Solow, who at 84 is the Foundation Fellow at the Russell Sage Foundation (where he succeeded Mertons father, sociologist Robert K. Merton), said he believed that he had retired several years earlier when he gave up his teaching salary at MIT. Both Samuelson and Solow taught economics for many years at MIT; Merton is the John and Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard Business School. When Solman questioned the experts about the distribution of their own investments, they returned some surprising answers. Solow, who won the Nobel in 1987, said he had no idea what was in his portfolio. I just never paid any attention, he said. Thats because I dont care. And Im lucky to have a wife who doesnt care. Merton described his portfolio as almost perfect — you just have to get short. The Harvard economist, who won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1997 for his study of stock options, later revealed that the bulk of his portfolio was in a Global Index Fund, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, and one hedge fund. He said he had been invested in a commercial real estate fund until recently, but dropped that when its value rose too quickly for his comfort. Searching for a more optimistic note, Merton pointed out that most people are still living in the houses theyve been used to living in. But, he reminded the audience, the value of those houses is considerably less than it used to be. In the coming years, he said, the people who will fare best are those who enjoy their work. If you happen to be doing what you like, he said, thats a pretty good deal. Asked what advice he had for young people today, Solow offered three short words: Earn and save.

Created by JESS3: In hopes of going beyond the traditionally static, and oftentimes boring, PowerPoint presentation, The Economist tapped JESS3 to help bring an important data set to life through a powerful graphic animation. Working closing with the Economist Intelligence Unit, which compiled a 150-page report called the Women's Economic Opportunity Index, our team explored creative direction through multiple styleframes in order to achieve a look that would illuminate crucial information about women's opportunity across the world. In combing through data and creating detailed storyboards, this six-minute animation tells the story through data visualization of where women stand in the business world from issues ranging from maternity leave to property rights. The Economist Intelligence Unit presented the data at the World In 2011 Festival, an event that coincided with the 25th Anniversary of The Economist's World In... publication. It preceded a panel sponsored by the Washington D.C.-based NGO Vital Voices featuring female entrepreneurs who are changing the way women live and work around the world.

Been flattened by a falling market? Or wondered what took the bend out of Phillips' curve? David Mitchell helps reveal some of the great dilemmas faced by governments trying to run an economy - whether to save or spend, control inflation, regulate trade, fix exchange rates, or just leave everyone to get on with it and not intervene. You'll learn why Adam Smith put such a high price on free markets, how Keynes found a bold new way to reduce unemployment, and what economists went on to discover about the impact of policy on people's and businesses' behaviour - which may not always be entirely rational.

In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

The Economist magazine’s latest “Big Mac Index,” a ranking of the relative strength of the world’s currencies, suggests that the NT dollar may be undervalued by more than 40 percent against the US dollar. Taiwan’s central bank, however, played down the study, and some experts warned against reading too much into the findings, which they said didn’t take into account differences in consumer price indices and income levels across the globe.The latest “Big Mac Index” released by The Economist magazine used an exchange-rate-standardized comparison to show that Taiwan’s currency may be some 40 percent undervalued on the foreign exchange market. The implication is that one US dollar should be worth 20 NT dollars, not 32 as it stands currently. Many locals were incredulous when confronted with the new data.The “Big Mac Index” is based upon the theory of purchasing power parity, which looks at the same goods bought in different countries to find out where those goods are cheaper, or more expensive, relative to each country’s income level. The theory therefore suggests how one country’s currency may be under or overvalued compared with another currency. The Economist’s index converts the price of a McDonald’s Big Mac bought in each country in the world to its equivalent in US dollars to make that comparison. Many finance experts, though, disagree about its usefulness. Huang Shih-tsungFinancial AnalystOur consumer price index is comparatively low, leading to relatively cheaper prices for Big Macs (in Taiwan) when compared to the rest of the world. Taiwan’s central bank even issued a statement to the press saying that the “Big Mac Index” has never been useful in predicting exchange rate movements and shouldn’t be used as a basis on which to evaluate currency values. It added that the index was only a simplistic guide to examining the differences between foreign currencies.
