The post-work beer is always satisfying, but as this chart from The Economist shows, residents of some nations have to work harder for it. Sometimes a lot harder.
Americans have it easy, earning their beer in a matter of minutes, but in India, it takes nearly an hour at the median wage to buy 500 ml worth of beer. Beer-loving Germany, surprisingly, took third, behind (dark horse?) Czech Republic.
Also good to know: Beer in China is cheap (55 cents for 500 ml). Beer in Australia is expensive ($3.70 for the same). But both of those are still below the 150-country average labor-to-beer ratio. Brazil is almost exactly at that average--500 ml for 20 minutes of work.
This is inspired by the movie "In Time" isn't it?
Years ago, this same type of survey was often done with a 'loaf of bread’.
I guess priorities have changed. ;)
Bread and Bear are not much different. And we use lots more bear than bread.
Ok so maybe I cheated with the spelling.
And it sounds like new789 is earning beer money at a phenomenal rate.
Prices of beer vary far and wide, be it made locally or imported and popularity to the local market. For the average consumer Brazil is a lower economic economy than the USA, but it seems here Brazil works more for their beer. So exactly what beer are we talking about and is it made local or is this an import beer? To better understand the above graph, it seems more information needs to be displayed or the results to us being made bias\skewed.
