Big MacCurrencies

http://216.239.39.100/search?q=cache:iqicLLXrKyUC:icg.harvard.edu/~ec1545/readings/big_mac_new_article.pdf+Big+MacCurrencies&hl=en&ie=UTF-8

Rating: 2, High!

Description: The Economist magazine publishes an annual global currency valuation based on the price of a Big Mac hamburger. Devised 16 years ago as a light-hearted guide to whether currencies are at their "correct" level, the index is based on the theory of purchasing-power parity (PPP). In the long run, countries' exchange rates should move towards rates that would equalize the prices of an identical basket of goods and services. The Economist's basket is a McDonald's Big Mac, produced in 120 countries. The Big Mac PPP is the exchange rate that would leave hamburgers costing the same in America as elsewhere. Comparing these with actual rates signals if a currency is under- or overvalued. Standard Economics 12.6.4
