David over at My Two Dollars has a great post talking about the value of items in 1972. It’s always shocking to me to see the prices from only 37 years ago. Here are a couple examples:
Avg house: $27600
Tuition to Harvard: $2800
One of the commenters noted that housing was only 2.3 times the avg salary back then and today it’s about 3.7 times. Very interesting……
Anyway, go check out My Two Dollars and see the rest of the figures. David is a good writer and definitely worthy of your RSS reader.
