Look Out Big Mac, Now There's a World Beer Index

The average Indian has to work more than 6 hours to earn enough money to buy a beer, whereas it takes a U.S. worker only 10 minutes, and an Italian worker only 9 minutes, according to a beer affordability index compiled by global beer giant SAB-Miller. Based in South African, SAB-Miller is one of the world’s largest brewers, with brewing interests and distribution agreements in over 60 countries across six continents.

Read a news report here. Read a previous post on the Big Mac Index here, and a previous post on iPod parity here.

Thanks to Sanil Kori.

while fun and amusing, this article is clearly misleading -- not to mention unscientific.

i'd hardly consider it an economic indicator and barely worth the time it took me to read.
