Deutsche’s guide to cheap shoes and dates


Deutsche Bank’s third annual survey of global prices was released in May, giving a guide to the cheapest and most expensive places for standard consumer goods. Here is some advice extracted from the data: purchase your Adidas sports shoes in South Africa; shop in India for Levi jeans and your VW Golf convertible; get your iPhone in Japan; rent a car in China; watch your movies in Malaysia; subscribe to the Economist in Indonesia; buy your Mac from Canada; get your smokes in the Philippines. 

Don’t even think about joining a gym in Russia or getting a haircut in Zurich. And never ever ask someone out in London – it will set you back $120 for a cheap date, compared with $93 in New York, $60 in Hong Kong and $32 in Mexico City.
