Trickle-down burgernomics: helping us help you
Stimulate the economy (and our stomachs). Sort of like donate-a-coffee, but with burgers.
"All sorrows are less with a burger."
- Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote
Wait a minute. Burgernomics? Are you kidding me?
Perhaps surprisingly, burgernomics is a real topic among serious economists.
The Big Mac Index was invented by The Economist in 1986 and is used as a way to compare the relative value of currencies. Big Macs are unique in that they're sold in nearly every country and they're also famously composed of the same ingredients.
Because of these properties, the comparison of the price of a Big Mac across countries is used to reason about current exchange rates and where exchange rates may head in the future.
Did Old Donny Quixote really say that about burgers?
He said it about bread, but burgers have buns. So who's to say he wouldn't enjoy two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun?
Okay, I'll buy you a burger. How does it work?
