Czech Republic -To work less for a lager -October 03, 2012

The Economist had already the wage comparison with a Big Mac Index and now there is the beer index. In a comparison compiled by analysts at the Swiss bank UBS it takes workers in Prague on average only 7 minutes to earn enough to buy a pivo. The figures, compiled by The Economist magazine, show roughly how long workers have to work, in a handful of countries, to be able to buy a half-litre of local beer.
