Big Mac index

The Big Mac index was invented by The Economist in 1986 as a lighthearted guide to whether currencies are at their “correct” level, since the sandwich is identical everywhere in the world. It is therefore also a great guide to the general price levels in most parts of the world.

The prices are from January 2021 and converted to US$.
