Big Macs: delicious (kinda), cheap (kinda), and educational (absolutely). In this episode, we look at how the economist magazine used burger prices to teach about purchasing power parity.

this is intriguing given the popeyes sandwich craze. mind you i don't even eat bread & ive gone vegan, but popeyes was a staple after school, so with all the hype & nostalgia, i wanted to try it. sold out everywhere. so I spent $30 on 10 strips, brioche buns, pickles, mayo to make my own..trash. its the bread, peasant food. i can't tolerate thin pizza dough, but bread is dangerous & my body's too aware of that to ignore it & enjoy it anymore. the strips were nostalgic but they put aluminum in the flour as stabilizer. hello Alzheimers. point is, that hype is a decent sign of economy strength.

3:32 Hong Kong is not like mainland china you should be putting this flag 🇭🇰

I don't how you came up with the cost of big mac in Hong Kong. Big Mac costs about 30 hkd. Average salary in Hong Kong is 14k hkd which is about 72 hkd an hour if you work 8 hours 24 days a month. So you definitely can't get a big mac if you work for 8.7 minutes. Correct me if I am wrong.

Well.. in my shitty country Big Mac costs just a little bit less than the US one, while the average salary is about 10 times less. (Hour and a half of work to buy a burger) So that whole concept doesn't really show anything.

I lived in India for three years... seen lots of McDonalds restaurants but never saw a Big Mac on the menu.

No beef in India. Our Mac offers almost a completely different menu. Most of it is veg.
