In the US 1 dollar buys little maybe a stick of gum. In China what can you get for a dollar?

Is there a point to this question or just an exercise in purchasing power parity?

Whoa, inflation!

I recall an episode of Wild West Tech... where there were some soiled doves who'd throw you one for $.25*... hence the term, "two-bit whore", I guess.

*twas when money was REAL

Is the dollar strong in China, I hear people make 5-10 cents an hour in china.

So a dollar can buy one weeks worth of groceries right?
