$5 it's not a lot of money but it's enough money for something right? When I was in high school in the late 1970's if you had $5 for lunch that meant you were eating high on the hog. In this day and age $5 can still get you lunch here in the United States but what about in other countries?

The folks at Buzzfeed put together this video to show you how much you could purchase with the power of $5. They looked at products like beer, rice, potatoes, Big Mac's and other staples of daily life. I was really surprised at how the United States stacked up.
