The same data on a graph (in US Dollar)
Source: The data come from the "Prices and Earnings" report published by UBS (United Bank of Switzerland), a large international bank. Every three years since 1971, UBS has drawn on its broad network of branch offices, many universities and personal contacts to compile the report. We use the last available report from 2009 and we update the numbers with new data on inflation and exchange rates for 2010 and 2011.
