Wouldn’t it be fun to group countries by area? On the expensive side of things, a Big Mac will run you $6.82 in Switzerland. do you have a size comparison of the 7 North Caucasus republics of southern Russia to a given state in the US? Bangladesh is smaller than Nepal,(nepal-147,181sq km and Bangladesh is 1,43,998) before posting in internet analysis about countries. Map Proves that "Portugal is Not a Small Country" - Big Think › Map of the World's Countries Rearranged by Population - Big Think › 16 - Europe fits in Brazil - Big Think › By Jessica Dillinger on June 11 2018 in Economics. Twice as big as Alaska (3,400,266 sq km): As big as the United States (9,826,630 sq km): Twice as big as the United States (19,653,260 sq km): Map credit:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_map_projections#mediaviewer/File:Miller_projection_SW.jpg, Country Areas: http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_area. Let's look at two examples.
I though there are 50 states instead of 37. On the expensive side of things, a Big Mac will run you $6.82 in Switzerland. Thanks!
Portugal is different from most other European nations in that it has a steadily decreasing population and is pretty anxious to have more people immigrate there.
Ukraine is home of the world's cheapest Big Mac, with each sandwich costing only $1.67 US dollars. I can hear The Hamburglar boarding the next plane to Kiev as we speak. Just why is a Big Mac so expensive in Switzerland? Nice try though.
Currently Sudan is indeed comparable to Alaska as stated, but South Sudan should be added as equivalent to Texas.
At least that was the idea The Economist magazine had when they introduced the Big Mac Index in 1986 to convey country-by-country consumer purchasing power. Instead the search engine brought me here.
Counting only land, Michigan is about the size of Iowa, and the UK (which is only 1% water) is just a little smaller than Wyoming. If the US economy spirals into another tailspin, the prices of American Big Macs may experience wild, Venezuelan-like swings. I'd definitely have some fries with that. Interesting, but my search was for countries compared to Ohio in size.
What most people don’t realize is how much room we have in the US compared to some countries, such as all of Europe. The smaller entities are compared with Washington, DC (178 sq km, 69 sq mi) or The Mall in Washington, DC (0.59 sq km, 0.23 sq mi, 146 acres).
But imagine my surprise when, today, I searched for Rwanda and found it wasn’t included! Switzerland is an expensive place to live.
As unstable as global economics have been in recent years, it's really a toss-up as to what could happen next.
Looking forward to seeing that list as well! Wouldn’t it be cool for US readers to see how big foreign countries are by comparing them to presumably familiar US states? On the other side of the spectrum, a Big Mac in Ukraine only costs $1.67.
I teach English to adult students from many countries and have often used this site to compare the sizes of their countries of origin. We wanted to do 1:1 comparisons here, but will do a future post in which we do better. Watch this space for a paper we are writing on the topic.
Ok, we added it to Massachusetts.
Due to their relatively higher standard of living, which is paid for through higher wages and taxes, many commodities and services are priced much higher, and Big Macs are no exception. While the Big Mac can't provide a magical explanation of how the entire world economy works, it does provide a good foundation to begin investigating what's happening in a country's economy, as it has become a regular purchased commodity around the globe. My student and I guessed that it must be about the same size as Hawaii, because that’s where Burundi is listed, and Rwanda and Burundi are roughly equal in size.
You may be surprised at what you find! The latest data from the Big Mac Index provides ample proof of that. Excellent point (though we see the area of Colombia as 1.142 million km sq). What a great resource–thank you! On the other side of the spectrum, a Big Mac in Ukraine only costs $1.67. You didn’t single out England, at about 130K sq.
I wonder wich state has the same size as SOMALIA.
The US as a whole is the biggest economy in the world but when I see powerful economies like Japan, Isreal, and South Korea are the same size of a state that doesn’t have a fraction of the same economic impact it shows how productive and importat those countries are. A great tool for educators. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! There are countries that get caught in the large gap between Texas and Alaska. I am quite surprised that there are not so many states larger than Finland, since to me it has always seemed a small country. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. The Big Mac Index was originally cooked up (yes, pun intended) as a generally good-natured way of comparing the Purchasing-Power Parity (PPP) of different countries. Most entities are compared with the entire US or one of the 50 states based on area measurements (1990 revised) provided by the US Bureau of the Census. I can’t quite remember. Thanks. In the middle of the spectrum, we have the home of the Big Mac, the USA, where one of these iconic burgers costs USD $5.30. On the other hand, if the global economy becomes more stable, we may come to see a world where the Big Mac is as equally affordable as it is uniformly created all around the world. Similar with Ethiopia, Venezuela, Niger or Bolivia…, So, a different color in the names could be enough or just a warning… km, which makes it in between the size of Mississippi and Louisiana, or Nicaragua and Greece. Many of the states of the United States have large gross domestic product (called gross state product) which would rank highly on a list of countries world GDP.
