Wow. "Currency is too unreliable so lets use Big Mac Hamburgers to do our calculations".

Are you talking equivalent to Aussie dollars or in local dollars in each country??? 

Last time I saw the price index, a Big Mac in the USA was $4.80 and the rest of the world was priced against the US dollar.

The cheapest is $1.75 right up to $7.85 so I can't see how they are priced the same around the world.........

The Big Mac Index has been around for a long time.
