Initial taxi fare, 1 minute phone fare, 1 liter of gasoline price. There are various indicators that compare prices in the world. BuzzFeed focuses on food prices. In addition to Big Mac, rice and beer, we compare prices around the world by prices of bananas, coffee, potatoes, minced meat and eggs.
In the video, we compare the prices of bananas and coffee, and then compare the prices of big Macs in the world. According to it, the number of Big Macs that can be bought for $ 5 is one in Australia, two in Russia, one and a half in Japan, and 1.15 in the United States. Looking at this alone, prices in Japan are lower than in Australia and the United States.
In the video, Sweden is said to have the highest price for Big Mac. Only 0.65 Big Macs can be purchased for $ 5.
The video then compares the prices of rice. According to it, rice that can be purchased for $ 5 weighs about 3.18 kg in the United States and about 5.4 kg in China. In Afghanistan, you can buy 6.3 kg of rice.
In contrast, it is said that in Japan you can only buy 910 grams of rice for $ 5. The screen even displays the comment "In Japan, people spend a lot of money on rice.", Which conveys the surprise that Japan's rice prices are high. ..
The last thing the video compares is the price of beer. In the US, you can buy four cans of beer for $ 5. Next, it will be introduced that you can only buy one beer in Japan. Hmm, how about this? You can actually buy more, right? By the way, there are two in the UK. I think I can buy 12 bottles in China. Is China a beer paradise? It was.
