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!

    Today, the Tax Foundation released its first annual International Tax Competitiveness Index that attempts to determine which countries provide the best tax environment for investment and business growth and development. It does this by measuring the competitiveness of tax systems in the OECD’s 34 countries based on over 40 tax policy variables in five categories: corporate income taxes, individual taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes, and the treatment of foreign earnings. The United States has the 3rd least competitive tax code in the OECD, trailed only by Portugal and France. Estonia, New Zealand, and Switzerland have the most competitive tax codes among developed nations.

  • 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.

  • Eurozone growth rates are WILDLY exaggerated, warns top economist

    GROWTH rates in the Eurozone have been "wildly exaggerated" by a major survey, a leading economist has warned. The Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), published by data firm IHS Marit, showed a six-year high in Eurozone manufacturing. It also suggested Britain's recent export recovery ranks as the worst among Europe's major economies. But Paul Donovan, managing director at UBS Wealth Management, dismissed the PMI as unreliable. He told US TV station CNBC earlier today: "This data has been wildly exaggerated. "We do not have 3.5 or 4 per cent growth in Europe. We are not going to get 3.5 or 4 per cent growth in Europe. "What we are seeing is a correction in a rather dubious indicator, frankly. "It's a sentiment indicator, it's not a real-world indicator, and it's coming back down." ...

    Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. 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. In this case, the basket is a McDonalds' Big Mac, which is produced in more than 100 countries. The Big Mac PPP is the exchange rate that would leave hamburgers costing the s...

  • 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...

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!

Today, the Tax Foundation released its first annual International Tax Competitiveness Index that attempts to determine which countries provide the best tax environment for investment and business growth and development. It does this by measuring the competitiveness of tax systems in the OECD’s 34 countries based on over 40 tax policy variables in five categories: corporate income taxes, individual taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes, and the treatment of foreign earnings. The United States has the 3rd least competitive tax code in the OECD, trailed only by Portugal and France. Estonia, New Zealand, and Switzerland have the most competitive tax codes among developed nations.

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.

GROWTH rates in the Eurozone have been "wildly exaggerated" by a major survey, a leading economist has warned. The Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), published by data firm IHS Marit, showed a six-year high in Eurozone manufacturing. It also suggested Britain's recent export recovery ranks as the worst among Europe's major economies. But Paul Donovan, managing director at UBS Wealth Management, dismissed the PMI as unreliable. He told US TV station CNBC earlier today: "This data has been wildly exaggerated. "We do not have 3.5 or 4 per cent growth in Europe. We are not going to get 3.5 or 4 per cent growth in Europe. "What we are seeing is a correction in a rather dubious indicator, frankly. "It's a sentiment indicator, it's not a real-world indicator, and it's coming back down." He added people do not fill in "these surveys" properly. Mr Donovan said: "We can prove they don't fill in the surveys properly looking at the export numbers. "We know that survey reliability has been declining in recent years, and we know that the survey data has been exaggerated for the last 12 months. "It's due a correction, it doesn't tell us anything about the real world." In response, Claus Vistesen, chief Eurozone economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, defended the "useful" economic indicator. He explained: "What often happens is that the PMI increases, which the market reacts to. "Production growth then increases, but part of this response comes via upward revisions to previous data. "This is of little help to markets which tend to look forward, but it shows that the PMIs are a useful short leading/real time indicator." -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Sorry Nicola!

Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. 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. In this case, the basket is a McDonalds' Big Mac, which is produced in more than 100 countries. The Big Mac PPP is the exchange rate that would leave hamburgers costing the same in the United States as elsewhere. Comparing actual exchange rates with PPP signals whether a currency is undervalued or overvalued. Some studies have found that the Big Mac index is often a better predictor of currency movements than more theoretically rigorous models. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy - ITA

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.
