Four high school graduates travel to Europe and end up in an impoverished country (Bratislava) where the U.S. dollar has enormous purchasing power. The graduates are able to take their last $1.83 and enjoy an amazing night out on the town. After showing the scene you can use simple supply and demand graphs to explain how the currency market works. Excellent clip to show when illustrating purchasing power parity.
