This is an odd ball tip, but it’s something most everyone (at least here in the USA) will find interesting. Have you ever wondered what inflation has done to our dollar?
There’s a site where you can see how much $100 in today’s money would be worth, let’s say, in 1960’s money. If you’re curious, $100 in 2016 money would have purchase about $12.50 worth of goods / services in 1960. I think gasoline was 24 cents a gallon back then. But I’m not sure, because I was not old enough to drive in 1960 – believe it or not.
A home that cost $40,000 in 1970 would cost $250,000 in 2016.
It’s really not called Inflation-O-Meter, but that’s what we call it. You can call it whatever you want. But I bet you will call it fun.
You’ll find it interesting, if not useful. Check out the Inflation Calculator here:
