Big Mac

This chart shows the relative purchasing powers of major cities, based on the time needed to work in order to be able to buy a Big Mac.

“Fast-food junkies are best off in Chicago, Toronto and Tokyo, where it takes a mere 12 minutes at work to afford a Big Mac. By contrast, employees must toil for over two hours to earn enough for a burger fix in Mexico City, Jakarta and Nairobi.”

Well, I’ll write my comment again…

I went to tokyo before, and the hambourger and coca cola cup were smaller than in europe. When they serve your coca cola, they put more ice than coca cola itself. So maybe it’s more expensibe than it should be…. on the contrary in europe, the cup and hamburger size are bigger than in Japan, but the price is quite high… comparing to the standard income of European.
