World: The price of beer in 128 countries

How much will it cost you to shout out “Mine’s a pint!” in pubs around the globe? Well, a new online database of beer prices in 128 countries will provide the answer.

With the price of a pint of beer being a similar economic indicator as the BigMac index, there might be more to it then just finding the best watering hole. Pint Price – as the database is called – provides the most data in beer drinking countries like the UK (more than 50 cities listed), US (more than 20 cities) or Germany (4 cities list) but also more exotic destinations like Togo or Zimbabwe are priced.

BTW did you know that a pint of beer is more expensive in Baghdad than in London – well check the database. There are still gaps in the data for some countries so Pint Price is asking users to provide data to further complete their database.

The annual Privacy & Human Rights Report compiled from their findings has by now become one of the most comprehensive surveys of global privacy and citizen rights.

    Their “most recent report” published a few days ago has been created with the help of more than 200 experts from around the world and has grown to 1,100 pages. It shows trends of

    …an overall worsening of privacy protection across the world, reflecting an increase in surveillance and a declining performance of privacy safeguards…“, and

    …an increasing trend amongst governments to archive data on the geographic, communications and financial records of all their citizens and residents. This trend leads to the conclusion that all citizens, regardless of legal status, are under suspicion…
