How Much Are M.U.S.C.L.E.’s Worth (III)


The Big Mac Index is a clever tool used by The Economist to help illustrate whether a currency is currently under- or overvalued.

For many people the Big Mac Index is simply an interesting anecdotal piece of data that may pass through their daily intake of news. While many interested M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors are likely more than familiar with the Big Mac, for the sake of awareness and perspective two M.U.S.C.L.E. inspired indexes have been created: (1) The Satan Cross Index (SCI); and (2) the Flesh Figure Index (FFI).

Both the Satan Cross Index and Flesh Figure Index are calculated using the currency data from Economist.com. The Satan Cross price of $29.99 is based on Computation #7 from Economics 200. The Flesh Figure price of $0.50 is based on the routine auction price of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures from Economics 100.

The graphs follow similar patterns, because the earnings are constant in both graphs. While the two graphs do not present new data, each graph presents a different perspective.
