A survey conducted by Deutsche Bank compares the cost of a few commodities across countries and India has these commodities either priced the lowest or is among the lowest. Bread in Bombay costs Rs. 45 while in Tokyo and Paris would cost Rs. 480-490. A Mc Donald’s burger is Rs. 90 in India while 499 in Venezuela.
